St. Mary's Catholic Church

Credited with saving many lives, Father Judge was one of the true heroes of the Klondike, serving the area from May 1897 until his death January 16, 1899. In this short period he built St. Mary's Hospital, a church and residences, doing much of the work himself. Despite ill health, Dawson's first priest became known as "The Saint of Dawson" through his untiring efforts in serving God and his fellow man.
