Beloved Brooklyn Priest Receives Father Vincent Capodanno Award at the Kings County Catholic War Veterans' Dinner Honoring Italian-Americans Who Defended Our Nation

Father Anthony Vincent Dell’Anno received the first annual Father Vincent Capodanno Award on October 2, 2014 at The Kings County (NY) Chapter of the Catholic War Veterans' Annual Dinner Honoring Italian-Americans Who Defended Our Nation.

Father Dell’Anno, who recently celebrated 45 years of ordination, has served as the chapter’s national chaplain, and as Chaplain of the New York chapter of Catholic War Veterans, having been with the organization for 36 years. He is a 4th Degree Member of the Knights of Columbus and the Chaplain for Cardinal Stritch Council #4661.

Father Dell’Anno says it’s a privilege to be able to work with our veterans who have given so much to our country. Whether he is leading the Veterans in prayer or offering Mass at meetings and Conventions, Father Dell’Anno always says he feels truly honored. 

The award is given each year to someone who exemplifies the teachings and selfless life of Father Capodanno, who was a missionary in the Far East before serving as a Chaplain in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War. Capodanno was in the field with the 1st Battalion 5th Marines during Operation Swift when the unit encountered a large group of North Vietnamese soldiers. Already injured, Father Capodanno still gave last rites to the dying Marines until he was killed by enemy machine gun fire. He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his selfless sacrifice. The U.S.S. Capodanno is named after him.

Matthew Weaver of MediaWeaver Entertainment and Jonathan Bock of Grace Hill Media are producing. B. Wayne Hughes, Jr. and Greg Campbell of Cantinas Entertainment, which is financing the feature, are executive producing. Warner Bros. Pictures will release the film on April 3, 2015.

 

The movie will present the band’s remarkable journey from a youth group band at Hillsong Church to worldwide sensation, routinely performing sold-out stadium concerts and selling more than 16 million albums all over the world.

 

In a joint statement, Kosove and Johnson said, “In terms of reach, Hillsong UNITED is one of the biggest bands out there, Christian or otherwise. But at their core, they’re just a group of unassuming individuals impacting the world with their music. We’re thrilled to be part of bringing their extraordinary story to the big screen.”

Ray Liotta to star in "The Identical"

Ray Liotta (GOODFELLAS), Ashley Judd (DIVERGENT), and up-and-coming Blake Rayne leads the star-studded cast of THE IDENTICAL, a film that magnifies the wisdom of God and the perfection of His plan through the story of twin brothers separated at birth.  While one grows to become an international rock star, the other is restricted by the dominating will of his father, a preacher (RAY LIOTTA) who feels his son’s calling is in the ministry.  The tale unfolds to reveal that God’s glory is not limited to a church: it is our use of the talents He gives us that act to further His kingdom.  The story is bookended and filled with matters of trust, love, and forgiveness, among other explicit and implicit connections to faith.
