About Saint Charles Garnier, S.J.



Charles Garnier was a priest, Jesuit and missionary. His father was secretary to King Henri III of France. Garnier was ordained in 1635 and travelled to New France in 1636 and immediately travelled to the Huron mission. The Hurons called him Ouracha, rain giver, because draught-ending rainfall occured following his arrival. On 7 December 1649 he was killed by the Iroqoius during an attack on the Petun village where he was living.

Les martyrs canadiens

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).

The Canadian Martyrs, also known as the North American Martyrs or the Martyrs of New France, were eight Jesuit missionaries from Sainte-Marie among the Hurons, who were tortured and martyred on various dates in the mid-17th century in Quebec, New France, in what are now southern Ontario and upstate New York, during the warfare between the Iroquois and the Huron. They are Jean de Brébeuf, Noël Chabanel, Antoine Daniel, Charles Garnier, René Goupil, Isaac Jogues, Jean de Lalande and Gabriel Lalemant. They were all canonized as saints in the Roman Catholic Church in 1930.
