By Loci B. Lenar
Update: I am happy to announce that my photograph of the stained glass window of Saint Isaac Jogues is published in Signes Des Temps (Signs of the Times), a new school book compiled by Chantale Samuel and Charles Vendette and published in the French language.
The learning guide was released in July 2011 by Les Editions CEC, a school book publisher in Anjou (Quebec) Canada. The photo appears in the new social studies book on page 133. Credits for photographs are listed on page 139.
The book is a social studies learning guide for grade 3 students entitled: Signes des Temps, and is used as a student's book, teacher's guide and digital key. (ISBN # 978-2-7617-3358-8)
The miniature stained glass window of St. Isaac Jogues can be seen inside of Saint Jude's Catholic Church, 40 Maxim Drive, Hopatcong, NJ, USA.

The following information is from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Saint Isaac Jogues (January 10, 1607 – October 18, 1646) was a Jesuit priest, missionary, and martyr who traveled and worked among the native populations in North America. He gave the original European name to Lake George, calling it Lac du Saint Sacrement, Lake of the Blessed Sacrament. In 1646, Jogues was martyred by the Mohawks near the present day Auriesville, New York. Jogues, St. Jean de Brébeuf and six other martyred missionaries, all Jesuits or laymen associated with them, were canonized in 1930 as "The North American Martyrs," or "St. Isaac Jogues and Companions." Their feast day is October 19, except in Canada, where the feast is celebrated on September 26.
