ST. PETERSBURG – St. Petersburg Catholic High School has two new school leaders.

The Diocese of St. Petersburg appointed Ross Bubolz as the next principal and the Rev. Anthony Ustick as school chaplain. Bubolz and Ustick will form the core of the new leadership team of the school.

Bubolz began his career at the Glenwood School in Chicago as a teacher, dean of students, and Residential Care Worker. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and completed his masters in educational administration from the Keller Graduate School of Management. He has spent the past 14 years in Catholic schools, most recently serving as the principal of the Cathedral School of St. Jude in St. Petersburg. He and his wife, Nicole, have nine children, four of whom will be students at St. Petersburg Catholic next year.

The Most Rev. Gregory L. Parkes, bishop of St. Petersburg, appointed Ustick as full-time chaplain at the school. While his main focus will be the spiritual needs of the students and families, he will work with Bubolz in the administration and leadership of the school. A native of Pinellas County, he was raised in the Largo-Clearwater area and ordained to the priesthood in May 2015. Most recently, he was the parochial vicar at the Cathedral of St. Jude the Apostle.

“I couldn’t be more pleased to have Ross and Rev. Anthony leading our faculty and staff at St. Pete Catholic,” Christopher Pastura, superintendent for the Diocese of St. Petersburg, said. “They are the perfect team to move us into the future because they share an authenticity of faith and a love for working with young people.”
