Abstract: Let $ \Gamma$ be a lattice in $ \mathrm{PSL}_2 (\mathbb{C})$. The pro-normal topology on $ \Gamma$ is defined by taking all cosets of nontrivial normal subgroups as a basis. This topology is finer than the pro-finite topology, but it is not discrete. We prove that every finitely generated subgroup $ \Delta < \Gamma$ is closed in the pro-normal topology. As a corollary we deduce that if $ H$ is a maximal subgroup of a lattice in $ \mathrm{PSL}_2( \mathbb{C})$, then either $ H$ is of finite index or $ H$ is not finitely generated.
