The Year in ReviewYour support, the growing number of Capodanno Missionaries, and the efforts of Team Capodanno reached nine countries spanning four continents- North America, Europe, Asia and Africa- seven ships, and US personnel serving in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. Just two days into this New Year welcomes US Coast Guard recipients and veterans in neighboring Canada.
The above report reflects the fruits of this “joint task force”.
Capodanno Missionaries implement effective steps to make known Fr. Vincent R. Capodanno, contributing to a renewed sense of the sacred present within honorable military service and total self-giving.
Chaplains gratefully distribute Fulton Sheen’s Wartime Prayer book and other requested supplies to U.S. and coalition armed forces personnel forward deployed and stationed throughout CONUS. Fulton Sheen’s writings serve as a field guide to honorable military service, a beacon of hope and reconciliation for those returning from combat, and an invaluable tool to strengthen resiliency.
A special year end thanks all of you, our supporters, and to Team Capodanno: Vince Criste, Claire Bott, Kristen Vogel, Fr. Michael Duesterhaus; Mission Capodanno’s Board of Directors, Advisors, and Honoraries, especially retired Captain Ted Bronson, RADM James Flatley III, VADM Thomas Kilcline, General Peter Pace, and Cardinal Edwin F. O’Brien.
Just think what can be accomplished together in 2013!
