During this time, he also spent two years in Greece, including one year at Simonos Petras Monastery on Mount Athos. He was ordained to the diaconate in January 1982 and to the priesthood two years later. In 1986, he was tonsured to monastic orders. From 1989 to 2010, Bishop Alexander taught with the Theology Department at Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI.
