The Archdiocese of the Military Services will have its 11th annual pilgrimage to Pilsen on Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11, in honor of Servant of God, U.S. Army Chaplain Father Emil J. Kapaun, who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor earlier this year.
Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m. at St. John Nepomucene Church. Celebrants will include the Rev. Monsignor John Foster, vicar general of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, as well as visiting chaplains and priests of the dioceses of Kansas.
After the mass, there will be a posting of military honors and wreath-laying at the statue of Kapaun on the church grounds. There will also be a luncheon in the church hall.
