Fr. Paul Le Jeune, S.J.

Fr. Paul Le Jeune, S.J. was the first head of the Jesuit order in New France, this Black Robe deserves the number of the holy trinity: Born a Protestant, he was a convert to Roman Catholicism. He gave out Jesuit rings to aboriginal converts, rings which became the first ceremonial rings to be distributed in Quebec - long before Stanley Cup rings.
