Viatorians have served residents in the Las Vegas area for more than 60 years, and
their ministry continues to draw others into the Viatorian charism.
That was evident earlier this month, when members of the Las Vegas region gathered to receive the formal commitment of two new lay associate members and the renewal of a current associate member.
The news gets better. They also welcomed six new pre-associates who are preparing the two-year discernment process before joining the Viatorian Community.
“We now number 43 members of the Viatorian community in the Las Vegas region,” says Br. Rob Robertson, CSV, who moved west in July and now works as
a counselor at St. Viator Catholic School.
New associates included John Keating, who practices law in Las Vegas, and retiree Don Wells, who made their two-year commitments, along with Associate Brian Barrett, who is a full time nursing student and renewed his commitment for three years.
New pre-associates to join with the community gathering included Megan Landis, Lisa Fairweather, Anthony Gugino, Deborah and Romeo Perez. Connie Clough was unable to make it.
All are very involved in pastoral ministries at St. Viator or St. Thomas More Catholic Communities and applied to become associates, as a way to deepen their involvement and connection with the Viatorian Community.
