Wasyly FEDAK, Archbishop: 1909-2005
The head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Canada 'was a father to all of his clergy' and a champion of his homeland's Orange Revolution
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail; with files from Canadian Press, Thursday, January 20, 2005 - Page S7
People with deep religious convictions often have a lovely way of putting the everyday. For example, the announcement from the church hierarchs did not state that Wasyly FEDAK, head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada, died in his sleep last Monday, but that he had "reposed in the Lord."
Archbishop FEDAK's official title was similarly grand: Primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada, His Beatitude, Metropolitan Wasyly, the Most Reverend Metropolitan-Archbishop of Winnipeg and of All Canada.
In that position, he shepherded some 33,000 members of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in this country. "He was a father to all of his clergy," said church chancellor William MAKARENKO. "He was very accessible. He never rushed to judgment.
"We have a saying in Ukrainian: Measure something seven times, cut it once. That is what he did. He was very, very patient."
And unperturbed. On his 90th birthday five years ago, his granddaughter Larissa asked: "Dido, you have lived a long time, have studied and witnessed many things. What is the most important thing that you could advise me?" He answered without hesitation: 'Don't worry.'
The same wit was evident until his final hours.
Archbishop FEDAK's son, Emil, recalled that a few days before his father's death, a priest came to his hospital room and asked whether he could read prayers to the dying cleric. The reply was: "Will it be long?"
Archbishop FEDAK's life spanned nearly the entire history of Ukrainian settlement in Canada and mirrored the community's development, said Ostap SKRYPNYK, executive director of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress. Indeed, until his final days, the primate joined other Ukrainian clergy in Canada in championing their homeland's Orange Revolution, which finally helped bring the reformist Viktor Yushchenko to office.
Friends and family noted that Archbishop FEDAK died just as a new Ukraine was being born.
"We got along fabulously," enthused Archbishop-Metropolitan Michael Bzdel, primate of the much larger Ukrainian Catholic Church in Canada. "He was very quiet and peaceful but approachable and co-operative." The two clerics, along with other bishops in Winnipeg, were part of an ecumenical conference that met four times a year to discuss spiritual issues and iron out differences.
He recalled the "open warfare" between Ukrainian Catholics and Orthodox in Winnipeg in the 1920s and '30s. Archbishop FEDAK helped implement "a beautiful rapprochement. He was what both our churches needed."
Over the years, Ukrainian Catholics and Orthodox in Winnipeg prayed together many times on feast days. They also joined to recall the internment of Ukrainians during the First World War by the Canadian government, and to honour the millions of Ukrainians who perished in Stalin's forced famine of 1932-1933.
Archbishop FEDAK reached out to fellow Orthodox Christians, too. In 1990, he established Eucharistic union between his church and another branch of the Eastern rite, the Patriarchate of Constantinople. During that time, his church became a member of the Canadian Council of Churches.
He also initiated the establishment of the Permanent Conference of Ukrainian Orthodox Bishops Beyond the Borders of Ukraine. He participated in creating a Conference of Orthodox Bishops of Canada and an Orthodox-Roman Catholic dialogue. In 1998, he hosted the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew in Winnipeg.
William FEDAK was not yet 3 when his parents and five siblings arrived in Canada from Ukraine, settling in tiny Sheho, Saskatchewan. As a young man, he decided on education as a career. Armed with a teaching certificate, he taught in mainly rural schools in Saskatchewan for 14 years.
In 1932, he married Paraskevia (Pearl) Timoffee, and later returned to school to study theology. He was ordained a priest in 1944 and served parishes in rural Manitoba before being assigned in 1948 to Grimsby, Ontario, to serve seven parishes.
In 1951, he began a 29-year tenure at St. Vladimir's Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Hamilton, Ontario; the church grew under his leadership from 47 families to more than 500, and was elevated to cathedral status.
Archbishop FEDAK proceeded through the ranks swiftly. In 1978, he was consecrated Bishop of Saskatoon and vicar of the Central Eparchy, or diocese, comprising Saskatchewan and Manitoba. In 1983, he was elevated to the rank of Archbishop of Toronto and the Eastern Eparchy. Two years later, he was elected Metropolitan and primate of the church, receiving the title of "His Beatitude."
His ascension to the church's top post was a watershed, said Mr. SKRYPNYK of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress. "Though he wasn't born in Canada, he was brought here at a very young age and was seen as a Canadian bishop. That was important in the life of the church."
As chaplain to the Canadian Ukrainian Youth Association, young people often referred to Archbishop FEDAK as "the Met." Said his son: "He liked that." And, as a man who'd always lived simply, "he couldn't believe that people would pay $4 for a cup of coffee."
In 2003, he was invested as an officer of the Order of Canada.
He submitted his resignation as primate only last November, and it was to have taken effect this July. Not only did his years not trouble him, but he scouted out others of similar vintage. At visitations, he was usually presented with a dozen roses. In later years, he made a habit of asking the oldest woman present to come forward. After some good-natured arguing, the recipient would collect the bouquet.
The closest he came to a motto, said his son Emil, was the following: "If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character. If there is beauty in the character, there will be harmony in the home. If there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation. If there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world."
Wasyly FEDAK was born November 1, 1909, in the village of Kadubivtsi in Ukraine's southwestern Bukovina region. He died on January 10, 2005, in Winnipeg of natural causes. He was 95. He was predeceased by his wife and is survived by sons Emil, Jerry and Eugene.
The Orthodox Rite of Burial of a Hierarch will take place at Holy Trinity Metropolitan Cathedral in Winnipeg, beginning this Friday at 7 p.m. Priests will read passages from scripture all night, until 10 a.m. Saturday morning, when the liturgy and funeral rite takes place, followed by interment and a memorial luncheon.
