The body of this renown writer, speaker, and evangelizer has recently returned to Peoria, IL. In addition, September 20th marks the 100th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood, and in the last few days, Pope Francis has announced that Sheen will be beatified. In honor of Venerable Fulton J. Sheen, we are organizing a one-day pilgrimage to Peoria on an upcoming Friday in September or October. If interested, please contact Chad Grube by July 31st at cgrube@saintjoan.org or at (765) 626-7005.
