Father Panayiotis Hasiakos was born in La Grange, IL to Dr. Peter and Mrs. Jorgie Hasiakos.  Father was raised attending the parish of Ss. Constantine & Helen in Palos Hills, where he served in the altar, taught Sunday School, and later served as a chanter.

Father Panayiotis completed his undergraduate studies with a major in Physics and a minor in Modern Greek Studies at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where he also stayed to complete a master's degree in Secondary Education. Before entering the seminary, Father Panayiotis taught high school physics for four years in the Chicago area. In 2012, Father was married to Presvytera Nikolia, at which point they moved to Boston to pursue graduate studies. Father graduated in May of 2015 with a Master of Divinity Degree from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Brookline, Massachusetts. After this, Father Panayiotis began his work on the ThM (Master of Theology), which he completed in the summer of 2021, with a thesis entitled "The Christological Letters of Saint Maximos the Confessor."  While at Holy Cross, Father Panayiotis received his certificate in Byzantine Music and served as the Lampadarios (left chanter), under the instruction of Rev. Dr. Romanos Karanos.

Father Panayiotis was ordained to the Holy Diaconate by Bishop Demetrios of Mokissos on February 19, 2017 at the parish of Saint John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Des Plaines, Illinois. His ordination to the Priesthood took place on the feast of the Holy Apostles, June 30, 2017, at the parish of Holy Apostles in Westchester, where he served as Associate Pastor through May of 2019. Father then served as Associate Pastor at St. Demetrios Chicago through December of 2020. Father Panayiotis and Presvytera Nikolia have four children: Dionysia, John, Maximi, and Irene.
