The abbot, Hieromonk Evagrios, was a monk for approximately 14 years on Mt Athos in the Monastery of Simonopetra. He was ordained to the priesthood on the 7th of January, 2005 by Bishop Nikandros, the bishop responsible for Western Australia in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese. On the same day, the then-novice of the monastery, also from Mt Athos, was tonsured a reader. Later, on the 21st of January, Archbishop Stylianos of Australia ordained Fr Thalassios, also from Simonopetra, to the diaconate.
