The Very Reverend Protopresbyter Stephen Sedor, 82, pastor emeritus of St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church in Perth Amboy, died yesterday, Nov. 30, 2003, at home.
Born in Binghamton, N.Y., he was a member of the first Seminary Class of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese. Protopresbyter Sedor was ordained to the Holy Priesthood by the late Metropolitan Orestes on Dec. 2, 1945. His early pastoral assignments included: Holy Ghost Church in Manville and St. Nicholas Church in Windber, Pa. In 1956, he was named pastor of St. John the Baptist Church in Perth Amboy, a position he held until retiring in 1992. In 1966, he was elevated to the rank of "Protopresbyter" by the late Bishop John. Upon retirement, he was named pastor emeritus of St. John's by His Eminence, Metropolitan Nicholas, and moved to Columbus 11 years ago. In retirement, Father Sedor tended to the spiritual needs of St. Paul the Apostle Mission Church in Freehold for several years. In 58 years of priesthood, Father Sedor distinguished himself in many ways throughout the Orthodox Church in general and the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Church in particular. During his years in Windber, he was a professor at Christ the Savior Seminary in Johnstown. For years he headed the Diocesan Education Commission, being a "pioneer" in preparing volumes of church school material. Much of his material, the first available in the Orthodox Church in English, is still being used in parishes of the Diocese.
As chairman of the Diocesan Education Commission, Father Sedor also was involved in running conferences and seminars for church school teachers. He was one of the founding members of the OCMC -- the Orthodox Christian theological society. A talented writer, Protobresbyter Sedor authored two books of sermons for pastoral use. For many years, he served as editor of the Church Messenger, the official publication of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese, and the ACRY Annual, a journal compiled each year by the Diocesan Youth Organization. During his years of active priestly service, Father Sedor served as a consultor on the Diocesan Consistory and as a dean of the New Jersey Deanery.
An eloquent speaker, Father Sedor was often called upon to be a guest speaker at various Diocesan gatherings and to serve as Toastmaster for many important events. During his 36 years as pastor of St. John's, Father Sedor was well known in the local community. For years, he was the chaplain of the Perth Amboy Fire Department and a member of the Raritan Bay Center Pastoral Committee.
He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Pani Mary (Kasper) Sedor. He was the father of Nadine Rebovich and her husband, George, of Acton, Mass., Myron and his wife, Linette, of Sergeantsville, Paul and his wife, Cyndy, of Howell and John and his wife, Lorraine, of Cranbury. He was the brother of Mary Kurtyak of Binghamton, N.Y., and John and Edward, both of Johnson City, N.Y. He is also survived by his eight grandchildren, Gayle, Stephen, Anastasia, Jeffery, Brian, Melissa, Charles and Claire.
Protopresbyter Sedor will lie in state from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. and 5 p.m.-7 p.m. Tuesday at St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church, 145 Broad St., Perth Amboy. At 7 p.m., the Burial Service for an Orthodox priest will be celebrated. The Funeral Liturgy will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 3, by His Eminence, Metropolitan Nicholas, a native son of St. John's Church. He will be assisted by members of the Diocesan Consistory, Diocesan Deans and other priestly vocations of the parish. Burial will be in the church cemetery. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Gustav J. Novak Funeral Home, 419 Barclay St., Perth Amboy. Donations to the Diocesan Seminary or St. John's Church would be appreciated.
