Mario Dealca

Senior Director of Franciscan Values & Mission

Mario Dealca has been with St. Coletta since 1989 and is highly committed to its Franciscan values and mission. His strong interest in the areas of pastoral ministry, spirituality, and special education has been greatly influenced by his brother who had an intellectual disability.
