Archbishop Fulton Sheen's
Radio Catechism

Archbishop Fulton Sheen (1895-1979) was the Archbishop of Rochester, in Upper State New York, who hosted a very popular, Emmy-winning TV program, "Life is Worth Living," between 1951 and 1957. He had been buried in St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City, but his remains were translated to Illinois. He is now buried in St. Mary's Cathedral in Peoria.
