Congratulations to Fr. Edward Anderson, CSV, who turned 94 on Dec. 29, making him
the oldest Viatorian in the Chicago Province.
Fr. Anderson resides in Las Vegas, where he has lived since moving to the area in 1966 to become the fifth principal of Bishop Gorman High School. Over the last 50 years, he served as pastor of St. Viator Catholic Community and rector of Guardian Angel Cathedral before retiring.
He left Las Vegas for a brief five year period — from 1969-1974 — after being elected by his confreres to serve as their provincial superior.
The former pastor, principal and scholar had left a lasting impression on many of his former novices, as a popular teacher of moral theology in the seminary. Consequently, he was the first Viatorian to be elected to the post, and not appointed.
Happy birthday, Fr. Anderson.
