Archimandrite Stephanos (Pantanassiotis, né Papanastasiou, Pappas) is the current abbot of 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 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.
