Les martyrs canadiens — Canadian Martyrs

Les martyrs canadiens étaient huit missionnaires jésuites à Sainte-Marie-au-pays-des-Hurons, qui furent tués au XVIIe siècle au Canada. Ils furent tués lors des guerres entre les Hurons et les Iroquois. Ces saints catholiques sont liturgiquement commémorés le 19 octobre par l'Église catholique, ou le 26 septembre au Canada. Les huit martyrs canadiens sont : Jean de Brébeuf, Noël Chabanel, Antoine Daniel, Charles Garnier, René Goupil, Jean de Lalande, Gabriel Lalemant et Isaac Jogues. Les martyrs canadiens furent canonisés par le pape Pie XI en 1930.

Ils sont collectivement des saints patrons secondaires du Canada. La paroisse francophone de Saskatoon en Saskatchewan est également placée sous la protection des saints martyrs canadiens, tout comme celle de Pont-Landry (Nouveau-Brunswick).
