400 Years in Canada

The Society of Jesus [Jesuits] has been present in Canada for four centuries. The 16 September 2011 editorial of the Catholic Register: Canada's Catholic News Source noted that the "Jesuits are a key part of our history."
Four hundred years ago a pair of brave, but no doubt anxious, French Jesuit missionaries landed at Port Royal in Acadia on the shores of the Bay of Fundy. In 1611 the small fort was a gateway to the vast, unexplored territory called New France.
The Catholic Register has made its 36-page homage to the Jesuits available electronically via a document reader.
