FIRE on the Mountain

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


Our Goal- $30,000

This year, the 2 organizations are continuing their work with Camino Eucharista.

Thank you for supporting our climbers who will spend this summer training for a summit attempt on two 14,000-foot peaks in the Uncompahgre Wilderness area in the Colorado Rockies in late July.
