David Allen Zubik (born September 4, 1949) was appointed the Bishop of Pittsburgh on July 18 2007. His appointment by Pope Benedict XVI ended the fourteen-month vacancy in the diocese left by Donald Wuerl, who became the Archbishop of Washington in June 2006. Bishop Zubik was ordained a priest in the Diocese of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on May 3, 1975.

Early life

Born in the working-class steel town of Ambridge, sixteen miles northwest of Pittsburgh along the Ohio River, Zubik attended St. Stanislaus Parish, St. Stanislaus Grade School, St. Veronica High School (Ambridge), Pittsburgh's St. Paul Seminary, and Duquesne University before heading to Baltimore, Maryland's Saint Mary's Seminary and University, Roland Park, from which he was ordained in 1975. After serving in various parishes, and earning a Master's in Educational Administration from Duquesne, he became administrative secretary to then-Bishop Anthony Bevilacqua in 1987, continuing in the post when then-Bishop Donald Wuerl arrived the following year. In 1991, Wuerl appointed him Vicar for Clergy and five years later, after a brief period as chancellor, he became vicar-general and General Secretary.

Auxiliary Bishop of Pittsburgh

Zubik was appointed Titular Bishop of Jamestown and an Auxiliary Bishop of Pittsburgh on February 18, 1997 by Pope John Paul II. He was consecrated on April 6, 1997 and served as a spiritual director at Saint Vincent Seminary in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.

Bishop of Green Bay

On October 10, 2003, he was appointed to succeed the Most Reverend Robert Banks as Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Green Bay (Green Bay, Wisconsin) as Bishop Banks had reached the retirement age of 75 and had resigned from his office. Bishop Zubik was then installed on December 12, the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, of the same year. Since becoming Bishop of the Diocese of Green Bay, it has been noted that vocations for the diocese have increased. [http://www.gbdioc.org/pg/history.tpl] infobox bishopstyles
