Saint Noël Chabanel, a priest, one of the eight North American Martyrs, was a French Jesuit Missionary. He went to New France in 1643 to evangelize the Hurons. He became assistant to Fr. Garnier at Etarita in 1649 and was murdered by an apostate Indian while returning from a visit to neighboring Sainte Marie.
The eight North American martyrs, also known as the Canadian Martyrs, the Jesuit Martyrs of North America or the Martyrs of France, included six priests and two lay brothers. They traveled from Renaissance France to the wild North American frontier as missionaries to win souls for Christ. All were martyred by the North American Indians. They are the first Catholic martyred saints of North America and were canonized on June 29, 1930.
