Ready for a once in a lifetime experience?

If you have an open mind and love serving others, or are simply looking to challenge yourself and expand your horizons, participate in a Catholic Order of Foresters' Alternative Break!

During this experience, you'll grow and be challenged spiritually and physically but all for a worthy cause - serving our brothers and sisters in Christ. These trips are so much more than a week away from home. Ask the Fraternal Outreach Team for more information and why participants call these trips the best weeks of their lives!

Join Catholic Order of Foresters on its 2022 Alternative Break in Kansas City!

Where: Jerusalem Farm - Kansas City, Missouri
When: May 22-27, 2022
Ages: 18-24
Registration fee: $150 (excluding travel expenses)

In May, a group of college-age (18-24) COF members will travel to Jerusalem Farm in Kansas City to help rebuild impoverished city areas affected by strict building and property codes. We will experience fellowship, service, and fun right in the heart of Kansas City, and we have a few unique plans lined up for the group to enjoy. Here’s a hint: Kansas City considers itself the BBQ capital of the world.

A longstanding COF tradition and staple Fraternal Outreach program, the 2022 Alternative Break is not to be missed! Last year’s Alternative Break in West Virginia allowed young members to find God in Appalachian nature. So, where will you find God this year?
