After his death August 14th, 1890 Devotion to Father McGivney continued to grow among people of Faith, leading the Archdiocese of Hartford to open his Cause for Canonization in 1997. In 2008 Pope Benedict XVI signed a Decree of Heroic Virtue Recognizing the Orders Founder as Venerable Servant of God, recognizing that he exercised the Theological and Cardinal Virtues to a Heroic Degree.
