Father Kapaun - church & school

$3.0M goal

Campaign created 10 months ago
Every Christian throughout the world could 'benefit'!
All Active Duty and former military could help create a 'memorial' to a Chaplain.   Fr Kapaun has been awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, very few Chaplains have.
All Christians throughout the world could benefit and Catholics would have a Traditional Latin Litugry & Sacraments church and parochial school (K thru 12).  It would be the only one in the Tucson, AZ Diocese for the past 40 years which would be seperate, exclusive and designated for the Latin Liturgy and Sacraments.
The Benedictine Monastery is on "National Register of Historic Places and is here in Tucson.   It will be 'for sale' after Easter 2017.  The formal application for his canonization is in Rome and he could be named 'Venerable Father Kapaun' later this year.   Sufficient funds to arrange final purchase needed before Easter, 2017.   Each and every benefactor would be periodically recognized in the Masses; "The most perfect prayer this side of Heaven".  It could mean 'life or death'; life everlasting or death in Hell?

the Monastery has 'sold'. delete 'sale by Easter 2017'. "There is presently a 'very questionable 'sale'- which is scheduled to close late Feb '18. The proposed 'intent' is not to continue ANY RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES there. In fact, the 'sanctuary will be 'remodeled' - (stripped bare) - and 'concerts or Bar-mitzyvahs' may be held. Or to be 'honey-combed' with 'up-scale apartments'. Since it was 'built' in part, large and small, by 'survivors' of the Cristeros War - would that not be the most hideous 'sacrilege' - in history? Furthermore, another 'intent' is to 'prepare it' for a parish/school 'dedicated in Honor' of Father Emil Kapaun - who is a CMOH recipient and soon to become 'St Emil Kapaun'. HOW COULD ANYONE IMAGINE A MORE FITTING 'MEMORIAL' - TO OUR GOD AND TO OUR COUNTRY - 'we' ask?
