Bro. Mickey McGrath, Oblate of St. Francis de Sales, (OSFS) is an award-winning artist, author, and storyteller. He is a popular presenter and frequent keynote speaker at conferences, parishes, and retreat centers throughout the United States and Canada. Using his own paintings and the stories which inspired them, Bro. Mickey makes deep and often humorous connections between art, social justice, and religious faith around a wide variety of themes and subjects.

Support Our Retreat with a Financial Donation!

In order to fund our efforts for our 2022 LGBTQ+ Retreat, we are hoping to raise $5000 from past participants, supporters, and friends. All funds raised will off set costs for rental fee for the retreat facility, honorarium for the presenter, and scholarships for attendees that need financial assistance.
