Hi, I’m Mountain.

I started The Catholic Traveler in 2004 to bring together my passion for the Catholic faith and my love of travel.

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

Be sure to check out my Dad’s latest album, The Holy Land Project.


Especially in these days with no international tourism, I am forever grateful to those supporting my mission. Patrons get access to exclusive live events, high-res photos, and occasional gifts.
