PRAYER

Lord Jesus, in the midst of the folly of war, your servant, Chaplain Emil Kapaun spent himself in total service to you on the battlefields and in the prison camps of Korea, until his death at the hands of his captors.

We now ask you, Lord Jesus, if it be your will, to make known to all the world the holiness of Chaplain Kapaun and the glory of his complete sacrifice for you by signs of miracles and peace.

In your name, Lord, we ask, for you are the source of peace, the strength of our service to others, and our final hope.

Amen

Father Kapaun, pray for us

3 of my kids went to Kapaun Mt. Carmel HS in Wichita. There is a great historical account of the good Father Kapaun there.

It is supposed to be pronounced: Ka pon and not Kay Pawn but everyone says it wrong after a local Bishop said it wrong years ago.

agreed
Ka Pawn

Everyone calls the school “KAY PAWN” because that is how it was dedicated by the Bishop.

The vast majority of Wichita locals pronounce Kapaun the wrong way.

But then, we have the ARE KANSAS “Arkansas” river too.
