Will F. Peterson experienced firsthand radical Catholic hospitality on trips to Iowa and North Dakota during college. He recognized that American Catholicism contains a multitude of people willing to open their doors to travelers. While an undergraduate, a pilgrimage to Rome for Pope Francis’s first Easter stirred the first thoughts of a pilgrimage ministry. He went on to teach for two years in an under-resourced Catholic high school in Memphis, TN. There he saw the limiting effects of not coming in contact with people who may share similar beliefs, but have different views and experiences of life. He now works full time with Modern Catholic Pilgrim.
