'''Archimandrite Stephanos''' (Pantanassiotis, né Papanastasiou, Pappas) is the current [[abbot]] of [[Monastery of Pantanassa (Mangrove, Australia)|Pantanassa Monastery]] on Mangrove Mountain, New South Wales, Australia.
During the 1970s, [[Archimandrite]] Stephanos was the Vicar-General of the [[Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia]]; however, he resigned in order to devote himself further to the monastic life and [[monasticism]] in Australia, first at Holy Transfiguration Monastery, Earlwood, Sydney, and then at Mangrove Mountain, where he resides from 1995 to the present.  Also since 1995, he has been the spiritual father of [[Monastery of the Holy Cross (Mangrove, Australia)|Holy Cross Monastery]].  To this day, as a much-loved and sought-after spiritual father, he hears [[confession]] weekly in Sydney.
In his role as vicar-general, Archimandrite Stephanos represented the [[Archdiocese]] at the founding of [[SCCOCA]] in 1979.
