Request Made for Appeal on Archbishop’s Remains


The Trustees of St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the Archdiocese of New York have requested another appeal to seek review of a recent ruling that the remains of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen be transferred from New York to the Diocese of Peoria, Ill.

Their request, to the State of New York Court of Appeals, New York’s highest court, was filed May 7. It follows the May 2 ruling by the Court of Appeals which dismissed an appeal filed by the Trustees and the Archdiocese March 11. That appeal regarded the 5-0 ruling March 5 by the New York State Supreme Court’s Appellate Division allowing the remains of Archbishop Sheen to be disinterred from their resting place St. Patrick’s Cathedral and relocated to the Peoria Diocese.
