About this Mission
Pope Francis named 2021 as the Year of St. Joseph with a call for an end to Fatherlessness around the world. In response, the men of FIRE and Men Under Construction collaborated to produce Patris Corde, the Bi-Annual FIRE on the Mountain experience.
In 2021 thirteen men from across the Diocese summited Mt Harvard and raised over $25,000 to support Foster Care Programming throughout Kansas City.
$14,000 donated to Arch Diocese of KC KS to build promotional videos for parish-based initiatives
$10,000 donated to Spoke 18 Ministries to support boys 18+ who are aging out of the KS Foster Care System
$2,450 donated to Camp Tekawitha to provide scholarships to summer camp for Foster Youth
