Our History

The Sheenist men’s group was founded in San Diego on February of 2014 and it is named after Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.


Our Ministry

One of the major tragedies flooding our world is the lack of masculinity among men and especially men of faith. True manhood is made up of character, virtue, and doing what is arduous and striving for holiness. The men of today have bought the lie that religion is boring and is left for the women and children. Our Ministry is targeted towards men who want to escape the bondage of living in the spirit of the age, and continuous following of their lower faculties. We are dedicated in helping each other grow in the necessary virtues to reach the highest spiritual union by prayer, work, community, and sacrifice by the guidance of the holy Catholic Church. Men cannot simply flip the switch on for masculinity! The virtues require our cooperation with God’s graces in order to grow in holiness.
