Fulton Sheen Week

Fulton Sheen Week 2015-07-25T23:25:12+00:00


From April 13-15, 2015, The Catholic University of America hosted “Archbishop Fulton Sheen Week.” As his cause for beatification is underway, the University chose this year to celebrate Sheen’s life, as 2015 marks the 75th Anniversary of Sheen’s first television appearance (Easter Sunday, 1940, at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, New York City). At that time, Sheen was celebrating the 10th anniversary of his Catholic Hour Radio Show. He would later go on to host a television series, Life Is Worth Living, a major step for the Church in evangelization through media.

In conjunction with CUA’s efforts to celebrate his life and promote his cause, Dominicana published blog posts on Sheen during this week of celebrations:

5 Things Fulton Sheen Teaches Us About Social Media (Br. Patrick Mary Briscoe, O.P.)

Fulton Sheen and the Playfulness of the Gospel (Br. Innocent Smith, O.P.)

The Priestly Life of America’s Bishop (Br. Constantius Sanders, O.P.)

Also, browse the video archive of Sheen’s time at the University and elsewhere.

Recordings of Sheen’s Life is Worth Living series are available here (in mp3) or you can download the app!
