In its declarations of sainthood, the Catholic Church recognizes the sanctity of these "servants of God," declaring they are with God in heaven and worthy of universal veneration. Churches and altars may be built in their names. Their feast days are listed in the Roman martyrology, the official cal- endar of saints' feast days. Of the five, only St. Elizabeth Ann Seton is native-born; the others were born in Europe and came to North America as missionaries. They are: The Jesuit North American martyrs: St. Rene Goupil (1607- 1642), St. Isaac Jogues (1607-1646), St. Jean Lalande (died 1646), St. Antoine Daniel (1601- 1648), St.Jean de Brebeuf (1593-1649), St. Gabriel Lalemant (1610-1649), St. Charles Gamier (circa 1606-1649) and St. Noel Chabanel (1613-1649). Six of the eight French Jesuits -- all missionaries among the Huron and Iroquois Indians -- were priests; one was a lay brother and one a lay volunteer. Three were martyred in New York, the others in Canada. Beatified in 1925; can- onized, 1930. Feast day: Oct. 19.
