TELL CITY—The Rev. Thomas Richstatter, known to most in this area as Father Tom, was born in Topeka, Kan., in 1939 and received his higher education in Ohio, Detroit and Paris.
But he has lived in Tell City the last 31 years and has taught at Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology for 32 years.
He will celebrate his 50th anniversary as a Catholic priest this Sunday at St. Paul. Then he will leave this area at the end of June, as he has decided it is time to retire.
