St. Paul, Oregon
As part of the St. Paul Mission -- named after the Apostle Paul -- Fr. Francois Blanchet arrived in this Oregan settlement in 1838 to see to the needs of the local Catholics. The town's name was taken from its newly built St. Paul Church that celebrated its first Catholic Mass on January 6, 1839.
