Fr. Bennett Colucci, O.F.M.Cap

Ordained, 1957

Notes: Fr. Bennett Colucci was ordained a priest of the Capuchin Franciscan Friars. In 2015, a survivor accused Fr. Colucci of sexually abusing her in the 1980s when she was a minor student at Marycrest High School in Denver, Colorado. Fr. Colucci reportedly worked at Maycrest High School, Annunciation Parish, and the Samaratan House during his time in the Archdiocese of Denver between approximately 1970 and 1993. Purportedly, Fr. Colucci was removed from ministry in 1993 but returned to work in the Diocese of Salina in 1995. Fr. Colucci is listed in the 2019 “Audit of the Capuchin Province of Mid-America (aka Province of St. Conrad)” as a “member found to have had credible allegations of sexually inappropriate/ criminal behavior against minors.” Fr. Colucci’s current status as a priest, his whereabouts, and whether he has access to children are unknown.
