Prayer for the Cause of Sainthood

O God, thank you for the life and holiness of your servant, Frederic Baraga.

I pray you will honor him by the title of Saint. He dedicated himself completely to missionary activity to make you known, loved and served by the people who you love. As a man of peace and love, Baraga brought peace and love wherever he traveled.

Lord, grant Venerable Bishop Baraga the grace of beatification.

We ask this in Christ name. ~Amen

Update on the Cause

We are working hard on our capital campaign for the development of the Educational Center which will allow us to continue to promote the life and labor of Venerable Bishop Baraga to many people near and far.
The Educational Center will provide a place to display the many tools Bishop Baraga used in his missionary work.  We will be able to convert his writings to a digital format making them accessible to a wider audience and it will provide a venue for us to show the EWTN documentary entitled They Might Be Saints:  Bishop Frederic Baraga.  The Educational Center will open on October 1, 2018. 
We are also preparing to submit a new case to the medical commission for their review.
