Charles Raymbault

Jesuit missionary. Born in 1602 in France; died in 1643 in Quebec, Canada. Entering the Society of Jesus, he was procurator to the Canadian mission when he was called to Quebec. He traveled to the Sault Sainte Marie with Saint Isaac Jogues on a voyage of exploration and to effect a more permanent apostolate. Exhausted, he returned to Quebec and was the first Jesuit to die in Canada.
