The road is wide open for pilgrims for the 6th Annual Fr. Kapaun Pilgrimage.
Get ready to make the Journey in honor of Fr. Kapaun, our Venerable Servant of God has recently received the Medal of Honor.
We unite our hearts to a great and holy chaplain who is with us every step of the way.
May God raise our beloved Fr. Kapaun to holy veneration among the Saints of the Church.
Share the 6th Annual Fr. Kapaun Pilgrimage with family, friends, and others this joyful year in the cause for beatification of our Diocesan "Servant of God," Fr. Emil Kapaun.
This pilgrimage helps to raise awareness to the cause for beatification of our beloved 'Servant of God,' Fr. Emil Kapaun.
This pilgrimage consists of 3 days, 2 nights and 60 miles of walking. Pilgrims walk during the day and camp at night ending with Mass in Pilsen.
Implemented in the pilgrimage the last 2 years is what we like to call, Fr. Kapun Stations. Every 2-3 miles we pause for reflection on different aspects of Fr. Kapaun's life beginning with his birth to ultimately his death. Certain miles along the way are held for such things as group rosaries, silence, discussions, and more. The pilgrimage also includes daily Mass and confessions.
The pilgrimage is a rigorous pace of 22 miles a day and is open to anyone able. Those unable to walk or wanting to participate in another way, we are looking for volunteers to assist in many different capacities (food, transportation, camp, etc.)
This pilgrimage is made possible by donations. We ask that pilgrims make a small donation to cover food, gas, and other needs, usually in the amount of $5 a pilgrim.
The 2014 pilgrimage will be May 30 - June 1. For more information, please contact Fr. Eric Weldon at 316-262-1821 or J.P. and Audrea Brunke at 620-545-7058.
