Martyrs' Court History

Built in 1951, this residence hall complex honors the memory of Saints Isaac Jogues, S.J., Rene Goupil, S.J. and Jean LaLande, three of the Jesuit Martyrs of North America.  (Saint Isaac Jogues was a Jesuit priest.  Saint Rene Goupil was a Jesuit brother, and Saint Jean LaLande was a lay volunteer who accompanied Saint Isaac Jogues on his second missionary journey to the area around Albany, New York.) They were martyred in the Iroquois village of Ossernenon (now Auriesville, New York) between 1642 and 1646.  Their feast day is observed on 19 October. Originally a complex of 7 houses with entrances on both lawn and street-facing sides, Martyrs' Court was renovated for first year student occupancy in the late 1990s and features a south facing central tower and clock face and several cut-stone ram's head ornaments around the building exterior.
