Father Mario of Catholic Center leaving after 38 years

After almost 38 years as the campus minister at the Catholic Center at Georgia Tech, Father Mario Di Lella, O.F.M. is retiring from service. On Monday, May 5, Father Mario will leave the Tech community for a retirement community of Franciscan priests, the St. Anthony Friary in St. Petersburg, Florida. His legacy, however, will live on at Tech.

Since his appointment here in 1970, Father Mario has become a well-known figure on campus. This is perhaps because of his dedication to being involved in campus life in a wider sphere than just in the Catholic Center and his constant presence in the lives of students.

“The most important part of my ministry here at Tech is simply being available,” Father Mario said. “ Since I live in the Catholic Center, I get to be here for my kids 365 days a year. I am right here available for whatever anyone needs. This means I can be a real part of my kids’ lives to make a real impact.”
