|Wife of Eastern Rite Priest
Question from Joseph Apicella on 07-19-2017:
Is there a special form of address for the wife of a Eastern Catholic priest.
|Answer by Robert Klesko on 07-21-2017:|
Yes, there is a form of address for the wife of an Eastern Catholic
priest. Among Greek Catholics it would be Presbytera (Pres—vee—té—
ra). Among Ukrainian Catholics, Panimatushka (Pa—nee—má—toosh—ka), or
Panimatka (Pa—nee—mát—ka). Russian Catholics - Matushka (Má—toosh—
ka). At my Ruthenian parish we used Pani + first name. Hope this helps! God bless!
