Reverend Curtis Lambert
Priest in Residence
I am a life-long resident of the Chicagoland area. I grew up in Maywood, Illinois, and attended St. Eulalia Grammar School. I am the oldest of four. My parents have both passed on. At 14 years of age, I entered the seminary: Quigley North High School, Niles College Seminary and finally St. Mary of the Lake Seminary in Mundelein. I was ordained a priest in 1974. I have served as an associated pastor at St. Basil in Chicago, St. Bartholomew in Addison, Sacred Heart Parish in Melrose Park and finally at St. Michael Parish in South Chicago. In September 1995 I became pastor of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish on the north side. After 12 years at Lourdes, I moved as pastor at St. Alphonsus Liguori in Prospect Heights. I served 11 years at St. Alphonsus, and I finally retired and entered a new phase in my life. I look forward to ministering with you as far as I am able.
