Very Reverend Kevin Storey, CSB Elected as Superior General of the Congregation of St. Basil

July 16, 2018

July 16, 2018 — The Congregation of St. Basil (Basilian Fathers) elected Father Kevin Storey, CSB as Superior General, effective immediately for a four-year term.

“I am looking forward to continuing the rich legacy of teaching goodness, discipline and knowledge to the next generation of parishioners and students. Basilian priests always made the Gospel accessible for me as a student and we have to imagine how to best preach Jesus today,” said Storey.

Also elected to the General Council were: Father David Katulski, CSB as Vicar General for a third term; Father John Huber, CSB as Second Councillor; Father Morgan Rice, CSB as Third Councillor; and Father Dennis Noelke, CSB as Fourth Councillor.

The elections took place at the Congregation’s General Chapter held in King City, Ontario from July 8-18. In accordance with the Basilian Way of Life, the General Chapter is a time, “to review the state of the Congregation and plan for its future, to make new laws or modify existing ones so that the Community may better fulfill its mission, and to elect the Superior General and General Councillors.” Storey will serve as the Congregation’s 10th Superior General since its reunification in 1955.

Storey has ministered at St. Thomas High School in Houston, Texas since 2004, first as a math teacher and then in 2012 he was appointed as the School’s President. He has also served on the General Council as Second Councillor since 2010.

Born in Madras (now Chennai), India, Storey came to know the Basilians as a high school student at Michael Power High School in Toronto, Ontario. He was ordained to the priesthood on June 27, 1992 in St. Basil’s Church in Toronto. He holds a Master of Divinity from the University of St. Michael’s College; a Master in Pastoral Counselling from Assumption University; and a Master of Education, Administrative Leadership from the University of St. Thomas.

Founded in France in 1822, The Congregation of St. Basil, also known as the Basilian Fathers, is a vibrant community of priests, students for the priesthood, and lay associates who profess simple vows. Basilians serve God through their apostolic work in education and evangelization throughout France, Canada, United States, Mexico, and Colombia.
