Father Chuck’s Challenge, which builds homes and develops villages for families in need in Latin America, will dedicate it’s 1,000th home built in Nicaragua on June 16.
A 12-member group will travel to Nicaragua for the dedication during a trip June 15-20.
The locally based charity not only constructs the homes, but also provides clean water, sanitation facilities, a community center, furniture, tools for farming, livestock, and fruit trees to families.
Since 2007, the clergy and lay people in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia have donated $4.7 million toward this charity.
Father Chuck’s Challenge is dedicated to the memory and ministry of Father Charles Pfeffer, an archdiocesan priest who died in 2004.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
