Who We Are

our vision

A world that finds God in all things.

our mission

Creatio guides all people to encounter the beauty of creation and the Creator. We lead transformative experiences to restore relationships with ourselves, with others, with nature, and fundamentally with God.

Our Story

Creatio Missionary Guides are full time employees who fundraise their own salaries so they can dedicate themselves to Creatio's mission year-round while keeping trip prices low so they are accessible to all. Our missionaries are trained as professional outdoor guides and have extensive experience leading adventure trips, facilitating experiential education, and directing the spiritual programing component of our courses. Please pray for our missionaries!

Ashley Piche Executive Director I am Ashley, I am super humbled and grateful to be serving Creatio’s mission, and I would love to meet you.  I moved to Colorado from Washington, DC in 2015 to be closer to the mountains, and I converted to Catholicism in 2019 because the mountains drew me closer to God.
Chris Lanciotti Director of Mission Integration True or False? I used to hike in Jeans, a hoodie, and basketball shoes. Born on the East Coast, which will always have a piece of my heart, I have lived 29 years of my life in CO, and have had the incredible privilege of having served as Guide, Program Manager, Formation Director, and in my for Creatio since 2014.
Hannah Crites Operations Manager I was hiking as soon as I knew how to walk. There are so many big and little things to enjoy while meeting the Creator in creation–from observing the smallest wildflower on the trail to taking in a view that I spent hours anticipating while summiting.

We are always looking for outdoor adventurists who love Creatio’s mission.
