New York's Power Siblings

George and Mother Agapia Stephanopoulos

George, 41, anchor, and Mother Agapia, 43, nun

An ethical streak runs in the family: After his time in the Clinton White House, George mea culpa'd in a memoir and now hosts ABC's This Week. His older sister, Maria (known as Mother Agapia), lives in the West Bank, running a school for Arab girls. Their father, Robert, is the dean of New York's Greek Orthodox Cathedral; Mom is the diocese's spokesperson. (Younger sister Marguarite, 39, works for Goldman Sachs, and Andrew, 38, is studying psychology.) "A priest's family is automatically part of an adult atmosphere, a public atmosphere," says one family friend. "George and Andrew altared from the time they were 4. They became independent, self-confident."
