Detroit retired Bishop Moses Anderson dead at 84
DETROIT (AP) - Retired auxiliary Bishop Moses B. Anderson has died. The first black bishop to serve in the Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit was 84.
The archdiocese says Anderson died Tuesday of cardiac arrest.
Anderson was born in Selma, Ala., and attended Edmundite College of St. Michael's in Winooski, Vt., and St. Edmund Seminary in Burlington, Vt. He was ordained a priest in 1958.
In 1983, Detroit Cardinal Edmund Szoka ordained Anderson an auxiliary bishop.
Anderson also served as pastor at Precious Blood Parish in Detroit in 1992-2001. He frequently ministered in Ghana, where he was honored as a tribal chief.
His funeral is next Monday at 11 a.m. at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Detroit. Visitation is 2-8:30 p.m. Sunday and 10-11 a.m. Monday.
