The Office of Catholic Education (OCE) and Faith in the Future are pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Brian Patrick King, as the next President of Father Judge High School for Boys in Northeast Philadelphia, effective January 1, 2016. This announcement follows the June 2015 departure of Father Joe Campellone, who was granted a sabbatical year for the purposes of studying Catholic secondary education models across the country, by his religious order the Oblates of Saint Francis DeSales. Father James Dalton, Principal, of Father Judge High School has served as interim president since Father Campelone’s departure this past summer.
Mr. King, 36 and a 1997 graduate of Father Judge, assumes the role of school president after more than 5 years of dedicated service as Director of Advancement and Operations. He oversaw several major school projects and renovations including: the Ramp Playground revitalization, track & field renovations, as well as renovations to the school cafeteria. Additionally, he has played an integral role in the success, during the last 5 years, of The Crusader Campaign Annual Appeal. Prior to his time at Father Judge he was the Executive Director of the Mayfair Community Development Corporation for over three years.
Mr. Christopher Mominey, Chief Operating Officer and Secretary for Catholic Education said, “As a proud alumn and current staff member at Father Judge, Mr. 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 in to a successful new chapter in its already rich history makes Mr. King an ideal choice for school President.”
He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Fine Arts from Saint Joseph’s University. Early in his career he was the Physical Education Teacher at Saint Matthew Parish Elementary School in Philadelphia from September 2001 through August 2006.
