Message from Fr. Kevin Storey, CSB after Elected Superior General of Basilian Order

Dear Friends,

Monday I was elected as Superior General of the Basilian Fathers. I begin the position immediately and as you can imagine it is with mixed emotions. I am honored and humbled to be chosen to the position and at the same time very sad to be leaving St. Thomas. St. Thomas has been my home since 2004 and I have loved every second of it, first as a member of the faculty and secondly as president. I am so proud of the accomplishments that we have achieved together.

I am delighted to announce that Fr. James Murphy, CSB will serve as the interim president for this upcoming school year and that we have engaged Carney Sandoe & Associates to conduct a nationwide search to determine the next president of St. Thomas. Fr. Murphy has over 16 years of experience in education across 5 different Basilian high schools. He has been a valuable and loved member of the St. Thomas community since 2011 and he has a Masters in Education from Boston College. I know that you will pray and support Fr. Murphy with the same kindness and patience that you showed me.

Please know how grateful I am for your generosity, words of encouragement and guidance during my time here, and let us continue to pray for St. Thomas because Eagle Fight Never Dies and our best times are ahead!

God bless,
Fr. Kevin Storey, CSB
President, St. Thomas High School

    Fr. Storey,

    I know I speak for the entire class of 2010 when I say that we will all miss you as you leave STHS and start on the next part of your journey. With that, we are grateful for everything you have done for us, teaching, leading us in mass and in rallies, and obviously jumping out of helicopters onto the football field.

    We wish you the best of luck Fr. Storey. It’s honestly not surprising that you were chosen for this role. You are a great counselor, a fantastic teacher, and an incredible spiritual leader. I know that regardless of where you go people who get the opportunity to meet you will surely have their lives touched as you have touched ours.

    We can’t thank you enough for everything Fr. Storey. If there is ever anything you need from us, we are all your brothers. We have your back because its true; EAGLE GIGHT NEVER DIES!

    Jonathan Tureau – ‘10

    Fr. Storey worked tirelessly to promote STHS, and he will be sorely missed. His boundless energy and his world-class smile energized the St. Thomas community, and helped to promote STHS to the status of one of the premier institutions of learning for young men during their four-year stay at the school. Fr. Storey is truly a man of St. Thomas and a classic example of the spirit and devotion of the entire Basilian order of the Congregation of St. Basil. Teach Me Goodness, Discipline, and Knowledge. May God continue to bless Father Storey as he leads the Basianian order of the Congregation of St. Basil in the 21st century.
