Monsignor Valdambrini Catholic Transcript Pays Editorial Tribute to Late Waterbury Prelate — Devotion to Spiritual, Civic Welfare of City Em phasized — Promotion in 1939 Well Merited. The death of the Right Rever end Joseph Valdambrlni on Wed nesday evening of last week brought to an end a long and col orful career in the priesthood. The late pastor of Our Lady of Lourdes church in Waterbury was never a neutral figure, even though he gave thirty-three years of his priestly life to one parish in the Hartford Diocese. Keen of mind and decisive in action, he was active in civic and religious projects even until the time of his death. His mercurial tempera ment gave the impression of per ennial youth and it comes as something of a surprise to his wide circle of friends and ac quaintances that he fell short of the scriptural three-score years and ten by less than a year. Monsignor Valdambrlni was a churchman In the true sense of the word. Bom In Rome, the center of the church’s life, he was brought up according to the traditions of his family, whose aristocratic members had served the Papacy for generations. In the schools of MRS. T.

Awarded Purple Heart The 25th Infantry (Tropic Light ing) Division announces that Fic. Sebastian Latino has been awarded the Purple Heart for wounds re ceived in combate against the Japanese on Luzon in the Philip pines. Pfc. Latina is a rifleman in the Infantry. Briefs A rehearsal for the Third and Fourth Degree Teams will be held Sunday afternoon at 3 o’clock in the Grange Hall.

Wakelee, tax collec tor, will be at her home on the Wolcott road to receive taxes on Mondays and Saturdays from 2 to 7 p. m. and on Thursdays and Fri days from 5 to 7 p. m. during the months of April and July. Rome his classmates included many whose names are now no table in the annals of the church. He himself desired to serve reli gion in the apostolic manner, so he joined the missibnaries of the Sacred Heart and, after eight years of study and preparation, was ordained in 1899. Soon after his ordination he and several other priests founded a new society named after St. Jer ome and intended, in the spirit of its patron, for the propagation of the Gospel. With this society he engaged in missionary work of various types for a decade, until he was called to the United States in 1910. In this country he found his final priestly vocation of min istering to the religious needs of the large Italian community in Waterbury. His missionary zeal did not diminish in his new post | but rather Increased as the years went on. His effective work for religion was recognized in 1939 when he was promoted to rank of domestic prelate in the papal household. Monsignor Valdambrini was a good friend and an able counselor not only to his own parishioners but to many others throughout Waterbury and beyond. His fa miliar and affectionately regarded figure will be sadly missed in the life of the city to whose spiritual and civic welfare he devoted half his lifetime.
