  1. Dear Matushka Helen and the Ziatyk Family:

    I am so sorry for your loss. Father Paul was such a hard working, devoted priest. He was loved by all. He will be missed by all that knew him. He was a great friend and priest who had a big impact on our lives. I am sorry he took ill and has now left to be with the lord. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. He will remain in our hearts and minds. May Father Paul rest in peace. God Bless you and your family.

    In heartfelt sympathy,

    Christine Scott & Mary Eror

  2. Fr. Paul Ziatyk was my classmate at St. Vladimir’s Seminary (1961-1964), a close friend and an exemplary fellow-priest for more than 5 decades. May the Lord God grant to his wife, Matushka Helen, a comforting peace during these initial days of separation, and may the same Lord and God grant to His faithful servant, the Archpriest Paul, a peaceful repose – holding him in His Eternal Memory!
