Photographs documenting Richard R. Mickley personal life and his service to the Metropolotian Community Church in Auckland, New Zealand.
Richard Raymond Mickley was the oldest of ten children of Raymond and Clara Mickley of Danville, Ohio. He entered Brunnerdale Seminary of the Society of the Precious Blood in Canton, Ohio at the age of 13. His superiors advised him to leave the seminary and find “a nice wife.” After serving in the U.S. Army in Korea during the police action, he met his future wife, Nancy with whom he would have eight children. He taught Latin and later owned and operated a restaurant with his wife. He returned to Catholic parish work as the Director of Religious Education in Michigan, one of the first five lay directors in the United States. For many years he worked with Ralph Martin and Steve Clark in the National Cursillo Movement Leadership and later in the Catholic Charismatic movement. He was named one of the first lay ministers of the Eucharist in the country.
