December 21, 2019 –
Mass will take place at 10 a.m. on Dec. 21 in the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception in Peoria:
This is the same Cathedral where Sheen was ordained a priest 100 years ago on September 20, 1919. It seems entirely fitting that the Beatification will take place at the end of this 100-year anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood. The Cathedral is also the current resting place for Sheen, who is entombed in a marble vault next to the altar where he was ordained.
