Chapel of the North American Martyrs
The Chapel of the North American Martyrs is named after a group of Jesuit missionaries sent to the area around upstate New York and Canada during the 17th Century to work with the Mohawk, Huron, and Iroquois tribes. Foremost among this group was St. Isaac Jogues, who, after escaping from a year-long imprisonment, asked to be sent back to New France where he suffered martyrdom.
St. Jean de Brebeuf was noted among the Hurons for his endurance and physical bravery. Though they met with little missionary success during their lifetimes, their self-sacrificial deaths eventually resulted in large numbers being received into the Church.
