As part of a unique mission, Fr Batt claims to be the first Australian and the first priest to have climbed and celebrated Mass on the highest mountain of every core country of Europe.

“I conceived of the idea of climbing the highest peak of every country and major territory in the world about 20 years ago,” Fr Batt said.
