Gerasimos was ordained to the [[priest]]hood in May of 1941 by [[Metropolitan]] [[Michael (Konstantinides) of America|Michael of Corinth]]. Damaskinos, now [[Archbishop]] of Athens, appointed Gerasimos as director of the orphanage of Vouliagmeni. He held this position through the remainder of the war and the occupation of Greece, following which he agreed to become [[Chancellor ]] of the [[Metropolis of Corinth]] in 1945. In 1947, he relocated to Germany, where he served as [[proistamenos]] of the Greek Orthodox church in Munich. It was during this service that he completed his first book ''Greek Philosophy as Propaideia to Christianity''.
