The Catholic Diocese of Wichita has announced funeral arrangements for Father Emil Kapaun.
The diocese said Tuesday that it will hold a funeral Mass for Kapaun on Wednesday, Sept. 29, in Hartman Arena. A vigil will be held the day before at the arena in Park City, which can hold up to 6,500 people.
Kapaun's remains will be returned from Hawaii on Sept. 25. His family and diocese officials — and likely military officials — will accompany them.
