Rev. Gary Kastl took over at Bishop Kelley for Father Brian O’Brien on December 22nd, 2017. Fr. Kastl has made new and stronger priorities in the school.

Before coming to Bishop Kelley, Fr. Kastl served as Pastor of St. Anne Catholic Church in Broken Arrow. While at St. Anne’s, he helped grow the parish by 33% and led the completion of a major building project.

Principal Jim Franz believes the appointment of Ft. Kastl was a good addition for the school.

“Father Kastl’s appointment as President of this school is a strong affirmation of the importance of Catholic education in the work of the Church,” Franz said.

Fr. Kastl wants to make sure the annual auction stays a top priority for technology, tuition, and theater. Bishop Kelley gives out over $900,000 a year in tuition assistance and a lot of that money comes from the auction.

“The cost to come to Bishop Kelley is not going to get cheaper. It’s only going to continue to get more expensive. Anyone who wants to come here and have a Catholic education should have a right to come here and have a Catholic education. So we have to do a lot of work to continue to raise money to make sure that there is money to go out to those students and their families,” Kastl said.

One of Fr. Kastl’s main things that he wanted to continue was the community service to our community.

“I hope that at the heart of any Christian service we do at Bishop Kelley is a recognition that God has first been gracious to us, and that we have a desire to share that with other people,” Kastl said.

Father Kastl has made new priorities at the school since taking over in December, 2017 and has shown his commitment and love to the school.
