Deacon Dave Licata resides in Port St. Lucie seasonally with his wife Carol. They have been parishioners at St. Peter since 2006 when they relocated from New Jersey. The Licata’s have six grown children who are now all out of the nest.
Deacon Dave was ordained on September 10, 2016 at the Cathedral of St. Ignatius Loyola. Prior to his ordination, he studied at Saint Vincent De Paul Seminary in Boynton Beach, Florida. During the five formation years at seminary, he was continuously active on the altar here at St. Peter and additionally took personal interest in many of the ministries and functions that have contributed to making our parish welcome to all who enter its doors.
Prior to accepting the vocation of diaconate, Deacon Dave, devoted all his time in the business world, initiated a startup food service company in Sussex, New Jersey, a company that he still consults for.
His future outlook as deacon is simply to be available to the parishioners at St. Peter, and as he is charged to do…bring souls to Christ.
