Hopefully this will be orthodox and worthy.  I checked some of the stuff they link to, and it seems orthodox, so I'm going to go out on a limb and post the link here:

Yes.  I think it means he is a Jesuit brother, and not an ordained priest. 
Really? Never heard of that.  I had Xaverian brothers for high school, and there was also at least one Dominican brother at college, but they were always "Brother" and not "Mister".

Maybe I'm using the word wrong.

Maybe it's Jesuit Scholastics?
This is a wonderful article. The things given are unanimous and needs to be appreciated by everyone..

Deacons can be "reverend mister", but it seems here that isn't the case. I don't know why brothers would use "mister". So it's probably something else.

The Jesuits have both Scholastics and Brothers.  We used to call the Scholastics "mister" and the brothers "brother".    The Jesuit formation program for the priesthood takes longer than most - 10 years or so before one becomes a priest, but one takes vows before that and is known as a Scholastic (basically a priest-in-training).
