Archimandrite Prokopios Kanavas is a priest in the Autocephalic Greek Orthodox Church for America and Australia. He is assigned to St Nicholas parish in Thebarton, Australia.

Prior to serving with the AGOCAA, Kanavas served as a deacon in Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem, which is under the Ecumenical Patriarchate. Kanavas was defrocked by the GOPJ on July 24, 2008.

On January 28, 2011 Kanavas was appointed as a police chaplain. He was removed from this position 7 days later after police received information from the GOPJ that allegedly affected his “suitability” for the position.
