Brian Patrick King, 36, has been named president of Father Judge High School for Boys in Northeast Philadelphia.
Father James Dalton, O.S.F.S., principal of Father Judge, has served as interim president since Father Joseph Campellone began a sabbatical year last June to study Catholic secondary education models across the country.
King, a 1997 graduate of Father Judge, assumes the role of school president after more than five years as the school’s director of advancement and operations.
He oversaw several major school projects and renovations including the ramp playground revitalization, track and field renovations, as well as renovations to the school cafeteria. He also had a leading role in the success of the Crusader Campaign Annual Appeal over the past five years.
Prior to his time at Father Judge King was the executive director of the Mayfair Community Development Corporation for more than three years.
Christopher Mominey, chief operating officer of Faith in the Future Foundation and archdiocesan secretary for Catholic education said King “knows first-hand the value of a Gospel-based, quality Catholic education provided for students and families here in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. His proven leadership and enthusiasm for leading the Father Judge Community into a successful new chapter in its already rich history makes Mr. King an ideal choice for school president.”
King holds a bachelor of science degree in fine arts from St. Joseph’s University. Early in his career he was the physical education teacher at St. Matthew Parish School in Northeast Philadelphia from September 2001 through August 2006.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
