Meet Bro. Mickey


Living and working in the most dangerous city in the United States, and one of the poorest, I have discovered new meaning for my talents and gifts; the revelation of unexpected beauty which crosses paths with the pain and challenges I see before me every day.



Bro. Mickey, an Oblate of St. Francis de Sales, is a popular and engaging presenter who happily travels to conferences, parishes, and retreat centers throughout North America to deliver the good news about deep and often whimsical connections between art and religious faith.

He is the author and illustrator of eleven books, many of which have received awards from Catholic publishing associations.  His own articles, or articles about him, have appeared in America Magazine, Commonweal, St. Anthony Messenger, USA Today, The Philadelphia Inquirer and many diocesean newspapers around the country.

Since 1987, he has served on summer faculty at the Grünewald Guild in Washington State where he’s also a Guild Master.

A native of Philadelphia, Bro. Mickey currently lives and works in Camden, NJ and is parishioner at Sacred Heart Church, a parish within the Roman Catholic Diocese of Camden.

You’re invited to connect with him and join the conversation on Facebook, where you can also find new pictures in real time!

Pope Francis Is Visiting Philadelphia!

My excitement over Pope Francis visiting my beloved hometown has resulted in these three prints which i sketched on-site several months ago. (I have a vivid imagination:) The prints are $10.00 each, 3 for $25.00. Get them Here


Four Dreams

“A nation can be considered great when it defends liberty as Lincoln did, when it fosters a culture which enables people to ‘dream’ of full rights for all their brothers and sisters, as Martin Luther King sought to do; when it strives for justice and the cause of the oppressed, as Dorothy Day did by her tireless work, the fruit of a faith which becomes dialogue and sows peace in the contemplative style of Thomas Merton.”
