PEORIA, Ill. -- The Archbishop Fulton John Sheen Foundation welcomes Bishop Robert C. Morlino to the episcopal advisory board for the cause for beatification of the Servant of God Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. Bishop Morlino joins bishops from around the U.S. in supporting the cause.

Fulton Sheen (1895-1979) was a universally popular evangelist, radio/TV personality, writer, and missionary. In 2002, his cause for beatification and canonization was officially opened by the Diocese of Peoria, Ill., Sheen's birthplace. The Sheen Foundation is the official promoter of the beatification cause.

The foundation welcomes Bishop Morlino and encourages the diocese to visit the foundation's Web site (www.archbishopsheencause.org) to learn more about Archbishop Sheen's canonization and how to help the cause.

The purpose of the Sheen Foundation is to make known the life, works, and thoughts of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, to educate people in the values that he taught, to assist the missions to which he dedicated his life, to assist others in seeking his intercession, and to undertake and pursue all acts ancillary thereto, including, but not limited to, the advancement of the cause of canonization of Archbishop Sheen in the Catholic Church, according to the process prescribed in the Code of Canon Law under the supervision of the bishop of the Diocese of Peoria, Ill.
