Br. Noel Hickey, FMS

What gives you joy in living the vocation of a Brother today?

Although it has been many years since I left the classroom I still enjoy my life and ministry as a Brother. I do this by contributing to the school in accompanying Special Education students on their weekly 'work experience', as they distribute the Community newspaper in the neighbourhood areas around the school.

As a Brother, how do you see yourself responding to the Gospel in the way of Mary?

In the Brothers' community I enjoy helping with simple services to those Brothers who are busy in school and especially to those with health issues. I am grateful to our good Lord for generally good health so I make the most of the outdoors, especially walking and bike-riding.

Brother Noel Hickey, 88, continues to enjoy working with students and staff in the Special Education Department at Newman College in Perth.
