#TBT: Honoring the late Reverend Anthony M. Genovese, OSA, ’70 CLAS

Father Mickey at the Augustinian Province assembly in 2012



For this week’s Throwback Thursday we honor the late Reverend Anthony M. Genovese, OSA, ’70 CLAS, who students, friends, and worshipers knew better as simply “Father Mickey.” He passed away on Sunday, July 21, at St. Thomas of Villanova Monastery.

Father Mickey was a beloved member of the Villanova Community for many years. He served in many roles on Villanova’s campus, the St. Thomas of Villanova Parish, and the St. Thomas of Villanova Monastery, most recently as the beloved chaplain for the Villanova women’s basketball team.

Together with the University community, we mourn this great loss of Father Mickey, a true Villanovan who left an indelible, positive mark on everyone he met.
