Men's Conference 2024 - Renewed in Christ: Reflecting His Light to the World

Join Bishop Burbidge and men from across the Diocese of Arlington at the 2024 Diocesan Men's Conference! 


Rev. Daniel Mode

Fr. Mode is a priest of the Diocese of Arlington, ordained in 1992, currently serving as the 12th Chaplain of the United States Coast Guard. He joined the Navy Reserve in 1997 and was assigned to active duty in 2007. Father Mode has served on four U.S. Navy Warships: the USS John F. Kennedy (CV 67), the USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), the USS George Washington (CVS 73), and the USS Blue Ridge (LCC 19).  He is a veteran of numerous deployments, including stints in the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan, Japan, and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where he served as command chaplain managing pastoral care for all 6,000 on base. From 2009 to 2012, he served as a chaplain to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, CT. A seasoned priest who has come to view himself as a “military missionary,” Father Mode is author of The Grunt Padre: the Service and Sacrifice of Father Vincent Robert Capodanno, Vietnam 1966-1967 (CMJ Marian), a biography of the Servant of God, U.S. Navy chaplain, and Vietnam War hero whose Cause for Canonization is being reviewed by the Catholic Church to determine if his giving his life for others while serving U.S Marines in combat constitutes sufficient reason to raise him to the altars.
