On Monday, December 11, at the age of 90, Matushka Feodosia Stadniuk, wife of Protopresbyter Matthew Stadniuk, pastor emeritus of the Cathedral of the Theophany of Christ in Moscow reposed in the Lord.
From 1968-1973, when Fr. Matthew was assigned as the Secretary to Archbishop Jonathan (Kopolovich), Patriarchal Exarch of North and South America and later as Rector of St. Nicholas Cathedral in New York City, Matushka Feodosia worked tirelessly singing, teaching and ministering among many others.
The funeral was held on Thursday, December 14, in the Cathedral of the Theophany of Christ in Moscow where the Stadniuks served the Lord for 39 years.
The clergy and laity of the Patriarchal Parishes in the USA express their deepest condolences to Protopresbyter Matthew and family.
