Born in Bucharest on 8 May 1976, I attended in the same town the high school at the Seminary of Orthodox Theology, then the Faculty of Orthodox Theology and the Masters, graduating in 2001. Since 2006 I follow the PhD courses at the Faculty of Orthodox Theology in Constanta.
Preot Stefan Morariu
Since September 2001, when I was ordained for the Archdiocese of Tomis, at the Cathedral of Constanta, I serve continuously in the Romanian Orthodox Church. I combined permanently the pedagogy and the ministry of the Church, teaching in 1997 the Orthodox Religion for a Secondary School in Bucharest, then in 2002 the French language for the Seminary of Orthodox Theology in Constanta, and in 2003 lecturing  as an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Orthodox Theology in Constanta.
In July 2001, I
married Andreea Morariu and we have two children, Filip Stefan and Ioana Maria.
The experience gained alongside the personalities of the Romanian Church theology, have materialized and continues to be visible through various articles and published books, such as “Ecclesiastical authority in the first Christian centuries,” BREN, Bucharest, 2007, and “Vocal study of the singing in the church service and its aesthetics “, BREN Publishing House, Bucharest 2007.
The results of the pastoral missionary activity are seen through the invaluable contribution of the
concelebrating priest, Antonel Dumitru, and the members of the ”Holy Forty Martyrs of Sebaste” church in Aurora, Ontario, where I served between August 2009 and March 2015. The fruitful pastoral ministry continues since March 2015, at the Orthodox Parish of “St. John the Evangelist” in Toronto, Ontario, under the oversight of his Eminence Archbishop Nathaniel of the Romanian Orthodox Episcopate of America.
