Thirteen 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.

        Father Chuck's Challenge, 
is a  small local charity
attempting to help clearly identified, desperately poor people in Haiti and Nicaragua with clear definite plans for...

"sheltering the homeless"  (new homes, latrines)

"feeding the hungry"  (chickens, fruit trees, seeds)

"giving drink to the thirsty"  (pure water to each home)

permanently!   fundamentally!   economically!   immediately!

As the global pandemic continues to separate us from the ones we serve in the highlands of Nicaragua, we decided to set out on a project to link Donors up with Beneficiaries utilizing technology that will span the distances between us.  FCC staff is working on specific details enabling both sides to celebrate Holy Mass together.  The date is not set yet but we are hoping for end of April or early May.  When we get the detailed plan completed, we’ll update this message with the date and program agenda.   Please keep watching this space for future announcements.

St. Therese of Lisieux and St. Francis Xavier are our patron saints.
     We call on their intercession for all involved in Father Chuck's Challenge, and for missionaries everywhere.

"Whatever you do for the least of my brothers you do for me."  (Mt. 25:40)

Our Mission's trip to Haiti was chronicled by Food for the Poor's videographer.
