Fulton Sheen Memorial
Friday, December 9, 2016
Come celebrate the life and legacy of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen at our first annual Fulton Sheen Day here at the center that bears his name, with a talk on Sheen's life and legacy by Fr. George Rutler..
The event is aimed at educating attendees about one of the most towering figures in the 20th Century American Catholic Church -- including his pioneering work in media -- and inspiring a deeper appreciation and understanding of their own faith. There will be a dedication ceremony during which a painting of the Madonna and Child -- from Sheen's personal collection -- will be installed in the Sheen Center's chapel.
Fr. George William Rutler, pastor of St. Michael's Church in Manhattan, is a popular preacher and writer known internationally for his many TV programs on EWTN. He is the author of nineteen books, and he holds degrees from Dartmouth, Johns Hopkins, the Angelicum in Rome, and Oxford.
