MARTYRS' SHRINE

Canadian shrine commemorating the Jesuit martyrs of North America who were slain for the faith between 1642 and 1649 in Ontario and the northern New York region. The shrine especially honors the memory of Sts. John de Brebeuf, Gabriel Lallemant, Charles Garnier, Noel Chabanel, and Antoine Daniel, who were martyred by the Canadian Indians. The shrine is located at Midland, Ontario, on the former site of old Forte Sainte Marie. A parallel shrine of the North American Martyrs is situated at Auriesville, New York.
