Rooted in a deep desire to be Jesus for the most vulnerable in the world, Move a Mountain Missions is a Catholic non-for-profit organization that aims to help youth and young adults from the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh grow deeper in their call to service.
We organize and raise funds for local and international Mission Trips, raise funds for particular projects for Mustard Seed Community, and assist in bringing a missionary charism of caring for the most vulnerable among us home to Pittsburgh.
How we move mountains.
We serve children and adults with disabilities and young mothers in crisis both locally in Pittsburgh and in Jamaica at Mustard Seed Communities.
We raise funds for particular projects for Mustard Seed Community. Currently, we are working to build an adaptive needs sports complex for residents.
We organize and raise funds to send local Pittsburgh high schoolers and college students on mission trips to serve the most vulnerable both locally and internationally and to help them grow deeper in their call to service as Christians.
Our mission teams come home truly transformed by their service experience - with their Catholic faith so enriched, they return to Pittsburgh with a new, giving spirit. It is our desire to do what we can to make this experience possible for more students.
“If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
- Matthew 17:20
“These young men and women are so impacted by the experience, their Catholic faith so enriched, they return with a new, giving spirit. So we decided to do what we can so more students can have that experience.”
“It’s amazing to see, we go there to serve and to help out the residents at Mustard Seed, but the reality is they do much more for us because they have a joy that is contagious.”
“This trip put me contact with the core of what makes life - caring for others, taking on their problems and offering love in return, validates everything we live for. Loving others is the realest thing we can do and it’s what we’re called to do.”
“This experience gave me a whole new outlook on life and showed me how to take the challenges I’m given and overcome them and as well as inspiring me to appreciate the gifts I have been given.”
“This mission trip really opened my eyes to reality and made me truly think about how I was living and what I took for granted.”
Move a Mountain Missions is a Pittsburgh, PA based non-profit organization goverened by a Board of Directors and operating under the direction of Reverend Christopher D. Donley, Pastor of Saint Raphael Parish in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh.
