Fulton Sheen, known for his ministries on radio and television, was born in El Paso, IL in 1895 and graduated from St. Viator College in Bourbonnais, IL in 1917. Karen and I met during Karen's research at the Viatorian archives.
The Sheen museum is located on the main drag (Route 24) in the historic railroad depot - an awesome building with a lot of space for Karen's creative work and displays!
Karen is a gracious host and dedicated to Sheen's memory and his cause for sainthood. I highly recommend a visit! Be sure to call in advance and make sure Karen is available - you definitely want to hear her stories.
