The Founding Christian Brothers Communities of 1964 to 1968 were inducted by
Brother Tim Ahearn on Friday, June 18, 2021.

Joining us for the evening four of the honorees.
Br. Patrick King FSC, Sean Gresh (former Br. Bernie Gresh), Br. Martin Zewe FSC and Br. Richard Kestler FSC

Sean Gresh spoke about what that first day of school at St. Patrick’s was like for a very young Christian Brother on his first day with the other five Christian Brothers who opened the school in September of 1964. It was a thrill and honor to have the last living member of the six founding Christian Brothers with us on this beautiful spring evening.
