"THE SERVANT OF ALL"
A Pilgrimage Retreat on the Life and Teaching of The Venerable Fulton J Sheen
Archbishop Fulton J Sheen was the voice of American Catholicism for nearly fifty years. Born in El Paso, IL, he was ordained a priest in 1919 and was ordained a bishop in 1951. He served the Diocese of Rochester, New York and as national director for the Propagation of the Faith. In addition, he was a participant at the Second Vatican Council and was on primetime television for many years with his show, “Life is Worth Living.” He was also the author of numerous books, including Life of Christ and The World’s First Love. Currently, his cause for canonization is under consideration.
Archbishop Sheen was probably one of the greatest evangelizers of our modern times. In fact, Billy Graham called Sheen “the Great Communicator.” His teachings are very deep but still very accessible to the common person. Now, you are invited to come to Marygrove and learn more about the teachings of Fulton J Sheen.
Join Fr. Brian Gerber and members of your parish on this year’s Parish Retreat. Using stories from the life of Ven. Fulton J Sheen, his most significant writings, theological reflection and good humor, Fr. Brian will make deep theological teachings accessible to all. ($120 per person, $200 for a married couple)
