Dcn. Andrew J Rubis
Deacon Andrew Rubis has been active in the Albanian Orthodox parishes and missions from an early age. While employed by IOCC in 1994, he made his first visit to Albania where his assistance to the newly-resurrected Church helped to secure international funding for several development projects. His lengthy stay in 1996 while a seminarian involved work with the Church’s youth movement. His seven subsequent trips have all involved collaboration with the local Orthodox Church.
Dn. Andrew served as a chanter for eleven years prior to his ordination in 2008 into the Albanian Orthodox Diocese of America, Patriarchate of Constantinople. Appointed to the Board of Directors of OCMC in 2009, he lives with his wife and three children in Philadelphia where he holds a civilian post with the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency.
