On Wednesday, in front of his Riordan family of faculty and staff, Joey Klobas ’07 became a lay Marianist Affiliate.

Spiritual affiliation is a special vocation in the Church and the Marianist Family of following Mary’s example — her trust in God’s promises, her openness to God’s action in her life, and her faithful response to God’s call. Read more about Affiliation here.

A proud alumnus, Mr. Klobas has held multiple roles at Riordan, including teacher, retreat leader, and club moderator. He is currently Activities Director, Prep Shop Manager, and director of the Fall Play, Harvey. He has also played a large role in helping Riordan launch its new House System, which is used at several Marianist high schools across the country.

The Riordan community is deeply proud of Mr. Klobas and his decision to pursue Affiliation. He will help those around him develop in faith and live the Marianist charisms.
