Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church
Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church Plaque, New Port Richey, FL.
This charming building in the heart of downtown New Port Richey FL has quite a history. It is the original parish for Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church. When the building was dedicated in March, 1919, it was located in a different area, and faced south. In 1921, a strong hurricane hit the area directly and the church was heavily damaged, lifted up and brought back down to face west. Father Felix Unger, who was praying at the time, was unharmed (proving, once again, prayer does work). He let the church stay facing west because he said, "If that's the way God wants it, we'll just have to leave it that way."
This plaque is placed where the original building of the church stood. The church celebrated 100 years in 2013.
