Movie Night: Called and Chosen
January 24, 2018 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PMFree
Called and Chosen is the story of the life of Fr Vincent Capodanno, MM. It is a film produce by James Kelty in collaboration with EWTN and The Father Capodanno Guild.
Fr Capodanno was a Missionary Disciple decades before the phrase came into use. His vocation was a missionary priest called to evangelize from his work with Maryknoll in Taiwan and Hong Kong and continuing with his work in Vietnam as a Navy Chaplain.
He was killed in a firefight on September 4, 1967 and received the Congressional Medal of Honor for his ministering to the Marines that day. The Archdiocese for the Military Services has begun a Cause for Fr Capodanno’s Canonization – The Father Capodanno Guild has the lead in support of the Cause.
In addition to the film, we hope to stream a YouTube video of Fr Daniel Mode, himself a Navy Chaplain and the author of the definitive biography of Fr Capodanno, highlighting the impact of this missionary years after his death.
