The community room in the retirement wing of the Viatorian Province Center came alive Thursday morning with the sounds of Christmas cheer, when members of Saint Viator High School’s concert choir came a caroling.

Seated around the choir members were retired Viatorian priests and brothers who had helped to establish the high school, including Fr. James
