Archbishop Sheen was known as America's 'television bishop'. He first broadcast in the late 1940s with the DuMont television network and broadcast his own programmes on local stations throughout America in the 1960s. In addition to serving as Auxiliary Bishop of New York, he was also Bishop of Rochester from 1966 to 1969. Upon resigning from this position, he was appointed Archbishop of the Titular See of Newport (Wales) by Pope Paul VI. In 2002 Archbishop Sheen's Cause for Canonization was officially opened.
