This year, Bishop Konderla appointed a new president. His name is Rev. Gary Kastl. Kastl replaced the former president, Father O’Brien after O’Brien was moved to St. Francis Xavier parish in Stillwater Oklahoma. Now, as much as everyone welcomed Father Kastl, some students are wondering…. Can he carry on the legacy of Father O’Brien.

Father Kastl had some thoughts on the topic.

“I don’t want to be a replica. I want to be myself,” Kastl said. “But I will make everyone feel welcome at Bishop Kelley just like Father O’Brien did.

For some of the seniors this year, it was a little rough having O’Brien leave after being with them for 3 out of the 4 years. All the seniors love Father Kastl and welcome him with open arms.

Zac Butler (12) has some tips for Kastl to help make the transition easier.

“One of the best things Father O’Brien did was that he knew everyone’s name,” Butler said. “Father Kastl needs to make funny auction videos, O’Brien was huge with that.”

Even though that it was sad to see Father O’Brien leave, the school still welcomes Father Kastl and wishes him luck with the transition and the future of the school.
