Fr. Samuel Mazzuchelli was a pioneer Dominican priest who traveled the upper Midwest in the 1800’s establishing more than 30 parish communities. Born in Italy in 1806, his steps are traced by boat, horseback and foot to explore his trials and triumphs as a missionary. Upon his death, a penance chain was discovered around his waist. Many pray with this chain, asking for Fr. Mazzuchelli’s intercession.
