From time to time, Brother Mickey receives an award or recognition for a recent book; is invited to bring his artwork to distant places; or has a new ministry initiative. He would like to share this information with all of you who have been so supportive of his ministry through the years, so this new page of his web site is dedicated to “sharing the joy”!

In the past few months, two new commissions have been completed: These include Our Lady of Guadalupe, for St. Edward’s University in Texas and Magnificat, for Magnificat High School in Rocky River, Ohio.

One of Brother Mickey’s most endearing characteristics is his sense of humor, which is so well illustrated by this photo. We enjoyed it so much that we had to share it with all of you. The picture was taken during the Southwest Liturgy Conference in Wyoming earlier in the year.
