Ten years ago Monsignor Francis X. Schmidt began the work of Father Chucks Challenge.  On April 22, 2017,  125 donors, volunteers and friends of FCC gathered at St. Isaac Jorges parish in Wayne, Pa. to celebrate and reflect upon the accomplishments of our FCC ministry.  See pictures and read more about the festivities HERE.

FCC has confirmed with Food for the Poor, the scheduling of our 2017 mission trips to both Nicaragua and Haiti.  Please contact us if you have an interest in going on either of these trips in 2017.   More information and contact form HERE.
