Venerable Bishop Baraga

This just in, the Holy Father has approved the recommendation of the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints. With this declaration Bishop Baraga's (1797-1868) beatification cause takes a significant step forward.

This is great news. What a beautiful thing to have the Holy Father recognize the heroic virtue of one of the first missionaries to our diocese and the first bishop of the Diocese of Marquette.

Venerable Bishop Baraga Pray for us.
