Hi, I’m Mountain!

I started The Catholic Traveler in 2004 to bring together my three passions, the Catholic faith, helping people, and travel.

When pandemics aren’t on, I lead hundreds of people a year on group pilgrimages across Europe and the Holy Land.

I take an additional hundreds of people a year on day pilgrimages of Catholic Rome.

I have written several free guides, including The Catholic Traveler’s Guide to Rome and my Guide to Packing.

Especially these days, many of us are only able to dream of travel, so I am constantly sharing my life in Italy on Instagram.
