Oct. 19, marked the celebration of the Feast of the North
American Martyrs. These patron saints of Jesuit High School
Sacramento serve an important role in our community, to Jesuits,
and to Catholics everywhere.
The group consists of eight saints: Saint René Goupil, Saint
Isaac Jogues, Saint Jean de Lalande, Saint Antoine Daniel, Saint
Jean de Brébeuf, Saint Noël Chabanel, Saint Charles Garnier, and
Saint Gabriel Lalemant. These saints were all French Jesuits who
died on a mission to North America in the 1600s.
