Please join us on Saturday, November 4th, as Queen of Martyrs in Cheektowaga welcomes the Venerable Nelson Baker to the stage. You will hear the life story of Father Baker through a live theatrical one-man presentation entitled “She Did It All!” From a typical family in Buffalo, you will see how he placed his life in the hands of Our Lady of Victory while dedicating his life to the marginalized, poor, and orphaned. See how Father Baker recovers from a deadly infection that put him on the brink of death only to lead him to discover this lasting devotion to the Blessed Mother. Witness how his trust in Mary’s intercession transformed a bankrupt orphanage and protectory into one of the greatest institutions of its kind in America. Accompany Father Baker as he guided thousands of orphaned and wayward boys by educating their minds and hearts and providing them with tools necessary to become respectable citizens, husbands, and fathers. Listen to how he then built a basilica to give thanks and honor to the Mother of God for her constant patronage. This presentation is free and open to all ages. Come and see Father Baker tell his story!
