A veteran educator and priest has been chosen to lead Roman Catholic High School for Boys, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia announced today.
Father Joseph Bongard was named president and rector of the school effective Aug. 1.
Bongard is a 1977 graduate of Roman. He previously served as the school’s rector from 2006 to 2010.
“He knows the Roman Catholic High School community well,” said Christopher Mominey, the archdiocese’s secretary for Catholic education. “Father Bongard is an obvious choice to lead the young men of Roman Catholic High School for Boys both spiritually and academically into a new chapter of an already rich history of Catholic education in Philadelphia.”
