Bishop Carl Kemme will travel to Rome this weekend with nearly 100 pilgrims from Kansas. On Monday, he'll appear before the Congregation for the Cause of Saints to present the Wichita Diocese's official document on Father Emil Kapaun of Pilsen. Kapaun, who died in a North Korean P.O.W. camp in 1951, was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor in 2013. The Vatican is currently investigating his life to see if he meets the criteria for sainthood. theying@wichitaeagle.com
