Rev. Lambert Sidor

Roman Catholic pastor


A Mass of Christian burial for the Rev. Lambert Sidor, O.F.M. Conv., who had been a parish worker and preaching friar, will be offered at 11 a.m. today at St. Stanislaus Kostka Roman Catholic Church, 700 S. Ann St.

Father Lambert, who was 80, died Wednesday of a heart ailment at the rectory of St. Stanislaus parish, where he had lived since 1982.


He had been associate pastor of St. Stanislaus Church from 1967 until 1977, after serving parishes in many areas in the Northeast and as far west as Milwaukee since his ordination in the Conventual Franciscans in 1936.

From 1977 until 1982, he was a member of a community of preaching friars in Ellicott City, which he served as treasurer and secretary. He and other members of the community preached at missions and other special occasions at churches throughout the Northeast. He continued preaching part time and helped with parish duties after moving back to St. Stanislaus in 1982.

Born in Buffalo, N.Y., and reared in Baltimore, he was educated at Loyola High School and at St. Francis High School in Athol Springs, N.Y.

He entered the order in 1928 at the novitiate in Ellicott City and was graduated from the Seminary of Philosophy in Montreal and St. Hyacinth's Seminary in Granby, Mass., before his ordination.

Father Lambert is survived by a sister, Theresa Shinsky, and a brother, Frank Sidor, both of Baltimore.

Before moving to the apartments about five years ago, the former Louise Johnson had lived in the house where she was born on nearby Springhill Road, formerly Railroad Avenue, since the 1974 death of her husband Allen J. Saunders.
