Texts from Quebec saints and Haitian saints

As for Quebec saints, I can give the list to the Choir.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_catholic_saints_of_canada
The Canadian Martyrs also known as the North American Martyrs were eight Jesuit missionaries from Sainte-Marie among the Hurons, who were martyred in the mid-17th century in Canada and upstate New York. They comprised the six priests and two companions missioning to the Huron during colonial days of New France. Their canonizations were for having been martyred for their faith. These holy men were canonized by Pope Pius XI on June 29, 1930. Their feast day is celebrated in Canada on September 26.
  1. St. Jean de Brébeuf (1593–1649)
  2. St. Noel Chabanel (1613–1649)
  3. St. Anthony Daniel (1601–1648)
  4. St. Charles Garnier (1605–1649)

The other Canadian Saints are:

She worked tirelessly to ensure the rights and welfare of women and children in New France and to ensure that young people received an education. Marguerite was canonized by Pope John Paul II on October 31, 1982; her feast day is celebrated in Canada on January 12.
St. Marguerite d’Youville (1701–1771).This pious woman founded the religious congregation called the Sisters of Charity, known as the “Grey Nuns.” Pope John Paul II canonized her in 1990. Her feast is celebrated on October 16.
St. André BessetteC.S.C. (French: Frère André, born Alfred Bessette) (August 9, 1845 – January 6, 1937) was a Holy Cross Brother and a significant figure of the Roman Catholic Church among French-Canadians, credited with thousands of reported miraculous healings. He was canonised by Pope Benedict XVI on October 17, 2010. His feast day is January 6.
St. Kateri Tekakwitha (Born in 1656, died in 1680) was a layperson and a significant aboriginal figure in Canada with credit to numerous miraculous healings. She was beatified on June 22, 1980 and was canonised by Pope Benedict XVI on October 21, 2012. Her feast day is April 17 in Canada.

For Haitian Saints, we have to do some research…it would seem more appropriate to include their words…There is an anthropological research to be made about Who Quebec Haitian revere…
