Annual Memorial Mass

The 2022 Memorial Mass for Father Vincent R. Capodanno, MM, took place on Tuesday, 6 September 2022, 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 Military Services, USA, was the principal 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 and thus formally initiated his Cause for Canonization. The Father Vincent Capodanno Guild is the only official organization established to promote the cause for canonization of Father Capodanno.
