Hi! My name is Marion Cooper! I took my first mission trip which I was a college student at UC Santa
Barbara and joined my fellow students on a trip to Mexico City. I immediately fell in love with doing
mission trips and was so happy to join Catholic Mission Trips on a project in Belize as a volunteer. I’m
excited to lead & be a Mission Leader to serve disadvantaged people and spread the word of God.

Favorite Saint: Saint Margaret of Scotland

Favorite Scripture Verse: “O God, you are my God—it is you I seek! For you my body yearns; for you
my soul thirsts, In a land parched, lifeless, and without water. I look to you in the sanctuary to
see your power and glory. For your love is better than life; my lips shall ever praise you! I will
bless you as long as I live; I will lift up my hands, calling on your name. My soul shall be sated as
with choice food, with joyous lips my mouth shall praise you! I think of you upon my bed, I
remember you through the watches of the night You indeed are my savior, and in the shadow
of your wings I shout for joy. My soul clings fast to you; your right hand upholds me.” – Psalm 63

I am serving with a team of young adult mission leaders to run 2 week-long international and domestic mission trips. This February, I will be serving with a CMT teams in Fort Myers, FL, serving families that survived destruction from Hurricane Ian. CMT serves in areas that have been affected by natural disasters and in areas of chronic poverty. Our projects mainly consist of home, school, and church repair and renovation. This Summer I will be serving as a Site Coordinator in Punta Gorda, Belize.
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-$2,000 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!
