Narrative of the life and experiences of a Catholic missionary in Wisconsin


Emigrating in 1848 from North Brabant, Holland at the age of seven, Chrysostom Verwyst arrived at the port of Boston and eventually made his way to Wisconsin. This database is a narrative written by him and originally published in 1916. It contains his account of settling in Brown County, attending Catholic seminary near Milwaukee during the Civil War, and joining the Franciscan order in 1883. Chronicling his pastoral travels, it provides descriptions of such communities as New London, Keshena, Hudson, Seneca, Duluth, and Superior. Additionally, it recounts a variety of festive celebrations and agricultural practices. For those patrons attempting to better understand the life of Midwest Catholics in the nineteenth century, this can be a helpful narrative.
