Nothing sparks members of the Viatorian Community more than visitors, especially at the Province Center

Fr. Mick Egan, Fr. Patrick Render and Fr. Bob Bolser all gathered to meet 2-month old Abigail

in Arlington Heights. In fact, visitors coming back to see their former Viatorians means so much, that a room has been dedicated to just that — visiting.

Most recently, the private visiting room drew a trio of Viatorians, who all formerly served at St. Thomas More Catholic Community in Henderson, Nevada, to meet one of the parish’s newest members: 2-month old Abigail Snead.

Their gathering was reminiscent of the 1987 movie, “Three Men and a Baby,” only this time it was “Three Viatorians — and a baby.”

Abigail is the daughter of Ray and Chelsea Snead, and granddaughter of Viatorian Associates Dan and Cheryl Schwarz, who are active members of St. Thomas More and the Viatorian Community.

Fr. Louis Querbes

Officials at the Province Center are in the midst of updating this new visiting room with new furniture and warm painting, but this much they know: the portrait of Fr. Louis Querbes will remain, reminding visitors of his mission to start the Clerics of St. Viator — and just how many lives they have touched.
