Father Baker Museum


In 1987, the Congregation for the Causes of Saints approved the initiation of Father Baker’s Cause for Canonization. His earthly remains were moved from a nearby cemetery to a tomb within the Our Lady of Victory Basilica in March 1999. Pope Benedict XVI declared Father Baker Venerable on January 14, 2011. The museum occupies most of the lower level of the Basilica. The exhibit takes visitors on a tour of Father Baker’s life and charitable works which continue to this day. Filled with artifacts from his life, cherished memories of people impacted by his ministry, and interesting facts and figures along the way, the museum serves as a tool to illustrate both the history and present-day impact of Father Baker’s Legacy of Caring.
