Cause for Canonization for Father Baker


By Lackawanna, NY


Eileen Buckley – Earlier this month the Vatican issued a decree elevating Monsignor Nelson Baker to "Venerable". This is an important step on the road to Sainthood for Buffalo's beloved priest.

As WBFO'S Eileen Buckley reports, the Catholic Diocese of Buffalo spoke publicly about the canonization process for Father Baker, explaining the meaning of the decree and the what must occur next.
