My name is Alexander Charles! I am a resident of Central Florida! I was born in Hawaii and was a military brat until my father retired from the United States Marine Corps. I spent two years as a missionary on college campuses and am so happy to join you all on this mission trip! My favorite saint is St. Francis Xavier for all of his evangelization on three continents and I aspire to Evangelize as much as he did in my own lifetime!
Favorite Saint Quote: “Go, Go, and set All Afire,” St. Ignatius of Loyola to St. Francis Xavier just before the latter embarked upon his journey East…
Join My Support Team!
I am serving with a team of young adult mission leaders to run a week-long domestic mission trip in Fort Myers, FL. We are serving families whose homes have been destroyed from hurricane Ian. Our projects mainly consist of home repair and renovation.
Beyond the great physical work of rebuilding, our mission teams will run retreats for our mission group, opening up the door for the Holy Spirit to work in the hearts of those who serve with us. We start each day with Mass, give formational reflections in the evening, facilitate small group discussions, and bring the groups to adore Jesus Blessed Sacrament and to receive His mercy in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Wow! It is such an impactful week for the community we serve, the groups who come to serve with us, for us as mission leaders, and you as mission partners.
Our expected work project expenses for 2023 total approximately $100,000. My personal goal is to raise between $1,000-$1,500 to ensure that we have the funds necessary for building supplies, given the astronomical rise in building supply costs. I am excited to share with you my journey with God as a missionary and invite you to become one of my mission partners. Everything that we have is from God and everything that we give is from God. Where is God asking you to invest? Please consider joining me on mission by making a one-time or recurring donation to support the work of Catholic Mission Trips, Inc. Your prayers and financial support will bring hope and restore dignity to the families we serve. We would be honored to have you partner with us at $50-$200 a month. I look forward to connecting with you and experiencing mission together! Thank you for joining my support team!
