Born October 4, 1901 in Brooklyn, New York, he received his early education there and then entered the Passionist Preparatory Seminary, Baltimore, Maryland. He then went to the Passionist novitiate in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he professed his vows on August 20, 1920. On March 12, 1927 he was ordained a priest at the Newark Cathedral by Bishop Diaz of Mexico. After ordination, Father Missack was sent for graduate studies in Rome where he obtained a degree in Canon Law. Upon his return to the United States he participated in numerous apostolates while he was a Lector of Canon Law to Passionist seminarians. After many years in that position he was in the Jamaica, New York community and was a key person with his work in the Benefactors Society and First Saturday Fatima group. When anyone received a Passionist Mass card it had the name Father Lambert Missack, C.P. on the bottom. He was not pleased with the changes that took place after the Second Vatican Council. Late in his life his health and hearing began to fail.
