Edward V. Mueth

Ordained: 1924

Born in St. Louis City, Missouri, Ed Mueth entered the Maryknoll Seminary in Ossining, New York in 1918. He spent his early priesthood in Kongmoon, China, and later in Hong Kong. Mueth was assigned to Hawai’i in 1957 and worked at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Kailua. He retired in 1964 due to poor health and died in 1983 in Ossining, New York. In 2013, a plaintiff filed suit alleging that Mueth and Joseph Henry abused him while he was an altar server at St. Anthony’s in the 1950s.

Mueth’s last name is sometimes spelled “Meuth.”
