Archbishop Fulton J Sheen

Bishop Daniel R. Jenky of the Diocese of Peoria announced this week that Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen will be beatified on Dec. 21. The ceremony will be at 10 a.m. local time at the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception in Peoria.

"This is the same cathedral where (Archbishop) Sheen was ordained a priest 100 years ago on Sept. 20, 1919," said a Peoria diocesan news release. "It seems entirely fitting that the beatification will take place at the end of this 100-year anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood."
