Baraga Capital Campaign

   
Baraga Educational Center 

Thank you for your generous support.
To Date we have raised $516,000!!

 

 
The Bishop Baraga Association is committed to creating an educational center that will become a pilgrimage destination, to preserve the artifacts used by Bishop Baraga during his ministry and comply with the Norms for Beatification. This center will capture the essence of Baraga: the man, the priest and the Bishop as he ministered throughout the Great Lakes Region. Here you will find an opportunity for prayer, mediation and inspiration.
 
 
Coming Spring 2019, we will begin construction of the Prayer Gardens.
 
The Prayer Gardens will provide visitors an opportunity to Follow in the Footsteps of Venerable Bishop Baraga. Entering into the upper gardens, one will visit the Votive House to pray for Baraga’s intercession. They will also see a replica of Mala Vas (Baraga’s birth place) and a Native American dwelling.

Their spiritual journey continues in the lower garden where visitors may pray the rosary and the Stations of the Cross which are symbolic of Baraga’s devotion to the Blessed Mother and Christ.
