The Very Reverend Protopresbyter Stephen Shutack, PhD died June 6, 2008 in Bridgeport
Hospital. Born in Nesquehoning, Pa. in 1927, Father Shutack graduated from the University of
Scranton with a B.A. He earned a Masters degree from Villanova University and a Doctorate in
Slavic Languages and Literature from Columbia University. His theological studies were at St.
Vladimirís Seminary in New York City. Father Shutack was ordained to the priesthood in New
York City in 1951 by the Most Reverend Orestes P. Chornock. In 1966, Bishop Orestes
elevated him to the rank of Monsignor or Archpriest. Father Stephen served Holy Ghost
Orthodox Church in Phoenixville, PA for 24 years, and in 1969 he built a beautiful church
edifice there. His most recent pastorate was at St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church, Silver
Lane, Stratford, CT where he served for 23 years. He also taught the Russian language and
Russian history at The Hill School in Pottstown, PA for 21 years. He is survived by his wife
Pani Helen Shutack, his daughter Justine and her husband Captain Dean Bradford of
Phoenixville, PA and their two children Elizabeth and Steven, his son Victor and his wife Leslie
Shutack of Valley Forge, PA and their two children Claire Skye and Callum, and his sister
Marie and her husband Nat Lucas and their son Nat Jr. of Jim Thorpe, PA. His body will lie in
state from 6 to 9 pm on Monday, June 9 in St. John the Baptist Church. Funeral Service of a
priest will be held at 6:30 pm. A Hierarchical Divine Liturgy will be held Tuesday, June 10 at
9:00 am. Internment will be in Sky-View Memorial Park in Hometown, PA on Wednesday at

May Monsignor Shutack's memory be eternal. He was remembered today for his long service to our parish.

Memory eternal to God's servant, the Protopresbyter Stephen. May Pani Helen and his family be comforted in the knowledge that he serves now before the Holy Throne.
