Archbishop Fulton Sheen's tomb is located in the side chapel of the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception.  The handicap ramp in front of the Cathedral leads you into the tomb.  You may even notice the "JMJ" on the railing.  We encourage all visitors but do ask you to respect the quiet nature of the tomb as people are praying.

Enter the tomb via the ramp, you will see the "JMJ" railing.
