Funeral for 1st black auxiliary bishop in Detroit
DETROIT (AP) - Cardinal Adam Maida and Detroit Archbishop Allen Vigneron joined hundreds of mourners at the funeral Mass for retired auxiliary Bishop Moses B. Anderson, the first black bishop to serve in the post.
The 84-year-old died last Tuesday of cardiac arrest. His funeral was Monday at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Detroit.
The Detroit Free Press reports that Anderson was eulogized as someone who overcame the dual prejudices of race and religion in his southern birthplace.
He 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, Pope John Paul II named Anderson a bishop, and Detroit Cardinal Edmund Szoka ordained him.
