capodannoprayercardThe Memorial Mass for Father Vincent R. Capodanno, MM, will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, 5 September 2017 in the Crypt Church of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, 400 Michigan Avenue, Northeast, Washington, D.C.  His Excellency, the Most Reverend Timothy P. Broglio, J.C.D., Archbishop for the United States Military Services, will be the main celebrant.  This annual Mass is celebrated in memory of Father Capodanno, killed in Vietnam on 4 September 1967, as he aided embattled Marines.  Father Capodanno posthumously received the Medal of Honor, and in May 2006 the Catholic Church officially proclaimed him a Servant of God, formally initiating his cause for beatification.  The Father Vincent Capodanno Guild is the only official organization set up to promote the cause for canonization of Father Capodanno.

For more information, please visit CapodannoGuild.org.  All are invited to attend the Memorial Mass on the 50th anniversary of his death.  There will be open seating, so please plan to arrive early.  Color Corps members are encouraged to participate and to arrive 1 hour prior to the Mass.    If reserved parking is necessary for our disabled attendees, please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
