Cathedrals of California, A Virtual Pilgrimage

What Happened to This Project?

You may be wondering why there are no recent posts on this project. The reason is simple; I am heavily involved in completing my first book, to be published by Paulist Press in November. Entitled Ascend: The Catholic Faith for a New Generation, it is a contemporary, visual overview of Christianity in a full-color magazine-style format. It’s available now for pre-order at

You can appreciate that writing this book, undergoing a theological review, researching and selecting over 100 images, negotiating image rights AND designing the entire book took a great deal of time! It is pretty much complete now and should be shortly delivered to the printer.

Once the smoke has cleared from Ascend, Francesco and I plan to pick up this project again.

    When I was young and on vacation with my parents we visited many Cathedrals in California. I visited three in silicone valley while employed as an engineer. And when I visited your site today it brought back many child-hood and adult memories.

    Thanks for your excellent work and sharing it with others. And now, I must go and investigate your book. Cheers & God Bless!
