Annual Memorial Mass

The Annual Memorial Mass for Father Capodanno was held on September 6, 2020.  This event coincided with the 26th Annual Memorial Mass held by the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, to honor those who serve or have served our Nation in uniform.

The combined 26th Annual Memorial Mass and Father Vincent Capodanno Mass was celebrated in the main chapel of the Edwin Cardinal O’Brien Pastoral Center. Concelebrating the combined Mass were Auxiliary Bishops F. Richard Spencer, Joseph L. Coffey, and a few other priests of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA. The small, socially distanced congregation consisted mostly of co-sponsored seminarians preparing to become U.S. Military chaplains, all of whom were gathered in Washington for their annual Labor Day weekend retreat.
