On December 8, Bishop Kelly High School held a special all-school Mass to celebrate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception and witness the affiliation of Gary Oberste ’70, AFSC, and Marianne Stich, AFSC, into the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools as Honorary Brothers. For many years, Gary and Marianne have been dedicated to Lasallian education and have helped to make Bishop Kelley the community that it is today.

Those individuals affiliated to the Institute are recognized as being persons who have been significantly active for a number of years in the mission of the Christian Brothers and whose lives are inspired by Lasallian spirituality. Affiliation is approved by Brother Superior and his Council in Rome. The Brothers show great appreciation for these people and are honored to welcome them as Affiliated Members (AFSC).
