Bishop Baraga

Bishop Frederic Baraga was born in Slovenia but came to America in 1830 to help with the expanding mission territory in the West. He is best known for his missionary work among the Ottawa in Michigan and the Ojibway in Wisconsin.

 

He is now considered a "Servant of God", which is the first step on the way to sainthood (Servant of God - Venerable - Blessed - Saint).

 

This window is in St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Duluth, MN.
