  • Description: On December 4, 1674 Fr Jaques Marquette and fellow explorer Louis Joliet established the first European dwelling at the mouth of the Chicago River. The settlement would eventually become the city of Chicago. Fr. Martin also founded settlements in Sault Ste Marie and St. Ignance, Michigan, and he and Joliet were the first Europeans to explore and map the northern portion of the Mississippi River. He's just one of the many priests who helped build Western Civilization. Fr. William Slattery joins us with more.
