Memorable Manitobans: Pantelemon Bozyk (1879-1944)

Cleric, poet.

Born at Onut, Bukovina on 1 April 1879, son of Ivan Bozyk and Maria Zawaliuk, he came to Canada in 1900 and was ordained a priest in the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in December 1911. By special papal dispensation in 1922, he was allowed to become a Catholic priest although he was married. Ordained a second time in July 1924, he came to Winnipeg in 1925, serving as priest at St. Mary’s Church (1925-1928) and St. Andrew’s Ukrainian Catholic Church (1928-1944). As a poet, he published extensively in Ukrainian. He died at Winnipeg on 20 November 1944 and was buried in the All Saints Cemetery.
