WILLIAM HART McNICHOLS is
"among the most famous creators of Christian
iconic images in the world.”

-- TIME Magazine, May 12th, 2002

"WILLIAM HART McNICHOLS is one of the greatest Christian artists of our time.”

-- Fr. James Martin, SJ, author of The Jesuit Guide to Everything

James Martin, with regard to Fr. Bill’s book, Mother of God, Similar to Fire, “Father McNichols invites us into the presence of the great model of contemplation, she who ‘treasured’ God in her heart, and brought him into the world. Open this book and allow these icons to open your eyes to our patron and our companion: Mary, the Mother of God.”


We invite you to open this website and our galleries of icons and images by Father Bill
to contemplate and to share.
