New pastor to be installed Saturday at Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church

NEW PORT RICHEY — Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church will celebrate the installation of a new pastor this weekend.

Father Sebastian Earthedath, who most recently served as parochial vicar at Prince of Peace Church in Sun City Center, will be installed by Bishop Robert N. Lynch at the 4 p.m. Mass on Saturday.

The church is at 5340 High St.

Earthedath came to the Diocese of St. Petersburg in 2005 as a missionary priest from the Missionary Society of St. Thomas the Apostle, founded in India in 1968. He spent more than 15 years as a pastor in India and the Middle East, and worked as a missionary throughout India. He was also a teacher, then principal of High Secondary School for many years.

Earthedath is one of seven children, and his extended family includes a number of priests and nuns. His older sister has been a nun for more than 35 years.

"To be able to be a shepherd, and bring love and care to the people of this parish brings me much joy to my mission," Earthedath said.

For information, call Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish at (727) 849-7521.
