Regarding Monsignor Labbe (pronounced "lobby"), there is
also a reference to Father Edward C. Labbe at another parish,
during the years 1946-51.

TRIBUTE TO ST. JAMES PARISH FAMILY IN NORTH JACKSON, OH --
HON. JAMES A. TRAFICANT, JR. (Extension of Remarks - August 06,
1993)


[Page: E2067]

HON. JAMES A. TRAFICANT, JR.

in the House of Representatives

FRIDAY, AUGUST 6, 1993


Mr. TRAFICANT. Mr. Speaker, I rise in honor of the St. James Parish
family in North Jackson, OH. St. James, Mr. Speaker, has been at the
heart of ecumenical activity in my 17th District in Ohio for the past 50
years.

On October 4, 1993, the 296 families enrolled at St. James will celebrate
its golden anniversary with a sense of pride and accomplishment. The
parish purchased its building in November 1941 for the sum of $3,400.
Two years later, St. James was raised from the status of mission to that
of a parish church by the New Diocese of Youngstown. Father Michael M.
Tondra was appointed as the first resident pastor. The parish owes its
existence, in part, to individuals such as Mr. and Mrs. Dale Kimmel and
Father Andrew Prokop, whose important contributions of time and effort
helped to bring the need for Catholic worship, education and sacraments
in Youngstown to the forefront of the Catholic leadership's agenda.

In its 50 years of service to the community, St. James has been under the
direction of nine upstanding, compassionate pastors, including: Father
Tondra (1943-46),

Father Edward C. Labbe (1946-51),

Father John Higgins (1951-54), Father Casimir Grabowski (1954-58),
Father Henry J. Cibulka (1958-74), Father Ronald M. Klingler (1974-76),
Father John P. Dailey (1976-77) and Father Henry J. Lileas (1978-83).
Father Lileas oversaw the groundbreaking of a new building in 1982 on a
plot of land donated by Edward J. DeBartolo. The Father administered
the first Mass in the completed building on December 18, 1983.

The St. James Parish family is currently under the direction of Father
Anthony F. Fasline and continues to serve as a place of worship and
guidance for the citizens of my district. Mr. Speaker, I extend a heartfelt
congratulations to St. James on its 50th anniversary. I am lucky to have
the compassion of its parish in my district.
