Roman Yereniuk was an Associate Professor at St. Andrew’s College and a Sessional Lecturer with the Centre for Ukrainian Canadian Studies, the Department of Religion, and the Department of German and Slavic Studies, at the University of Manitoba. He taught courses on the History of Eastern Christianity and the experience of Ukrainian Canadians. Yereniuk was born in Salzburg, Austria in 1946 and immigrated to Edmonton, Alberta, with his parents and siblings in 1949. He received his primary and secondary education in Edmonton. A graduate of the University of Manitoba (B.A., 1970), Yereniuk also earned an M.Div. in Theology (St. Andrew's College, 1970), an M.A. in Religious Studies (McGill University, 1972), and a Licentiate (1978) and Doctorate (1988) in Eastern Christian History from the Oriental Institute in Rome.
At St. Andrew’s College he was employed as Lecturer and Dean of Residence (1972-1975), Assistant Professor and Dean of Students (1980-1988), Principal and Associate Professor (1988-1998), Associate Professor (1998-2008), and Associate Professor and Acting Director of the Centre for Ukrainian Canadian Studies (2008-2016). He served as a sessional lecturer in the Departments of Religion, Slavic Studies and the Centre for Ukrainian Canadian Studies on numerous occasions from the early 1970s through the 2010s.
In addition to numerous popular and scholarly articles, Yereniuk co-authored (with Basil Rotoff and Stella Hryniuk) “Monuments to Faith: Ukrainian Churches in Manitoba” (Winnipeg: University of Manitoba Press, 1990), and he published two works on the Ukrainian Orthodox Church: a pamphlet entitled “A short historical outline of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada (UOCC)” (Winnipeg: Ecclesia Publishing, 2008) and a monograph “Ukrains’ka pravoslavna tserkva: vybrani istorychni narysy z XVII-XVIII st. i z Ukrains’koi kanads’koi diiaspory” (Lviv: Litopys, 2010). He also served as editor of “Vira i kul’tura” (Faith and Culture) an irregular scholarly journal published by St. Andrew’s College.
Yereniuk was also active in civic and federal politics. On two occasions, he was elected and served as a school trustee with the Winnipeg School Division (1989-1995, 1998-2006). In 1993-1994 he was the Regional Director of the Manitoba Association of School Trustees. During the 1997 and 2000 federal election campaigns Yereniuk ran unsuccessfully as a New Democratic Party candidate in the Winnipeg—St. Paul constituency.
