WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — The Robert J. Dole Veteran Affairs Medical Center Chaplain Service will be holding a ceremony to honor Father Emil Kapaun on Thursday, Sept. 30, at First Presbyterian Church, 525 N. Broadway. The service will begin at 10 a.m.
The service will also include a welcome home for all veterans who have deployed during times of war. The event is open to the public.
The VA says the theme of the service is Home-Faith-Service and that it will welcome home not only Kapaun but all veterans who have deployed during times of war. It will also celebrate the faith that was the source for Kapaun’s life and service and provide an opportunity for participants to see how they can extend Kapaun’s service in their own spheres of influence.
You can also watch the broadcast of the service live on First Presbyterian Church’s website.
