My name is Richard Hilton. I am a contractor from Los Altos, California. I was raised as a devout Catholic but fell away from the faith as a teenager. By God’s eternal mercy and grace I was brought back to our beautiful faith 3 years ago. Shortly after my return to the faith I read about Saint Maximillian Kolbe and his consecration to our Blessed Lady and have tried in every way I know how to consecrate my life to Her and follow her simple message of “Yes to the Lord”.
I reached out to CMT last spring looking for an opportunity to share my many years of construction experience with young people in a way that would give Glory to God and serve the needs of those in desperate need. I have spent 4 weeks this last year with CMT on missions as well as helping on some remote projects. I can honestly say that this year has truly been the most impactful of my life and am so blessed that CMT has brought me into their family.
I have been asked to help with training mission leaders next year in preparation for an amazing summer and to serve as CMT’s contractor in Eastern Kentucky for as much of the summer as I possibly can. I look forward to meeting with each and every one of you who chooses to work for CMT and volunteer to serve in Eastern Kentucky next summer.
