Archbishop Fulton Sheen

With the return of Archbishop Sheen to his place of rest in the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception, Bishop Jenky is pleased to announce that his Cause for Beatification and Canonization has resumed.

To help communicate information about the Cause and a hopeful future Beatification, we have launched a new website, CelebrateSheen This website provides information about the Venerable Servant of God and answers many questions about the Cause.

Additionally, Bishop Jenky has appointed Monsignor Jason Gray the Chairman of the Fulton Sheen Planning Committee for the Beatification events.
