History of the registers:

Retired Hudson's Bay employees settled on the prairie with their families. These settlers petitioned the Bishop Provencher in Quebec for a priest—several times. When Fathers F. N. Blanchet and Modeste Demers arrived in the territory in late 1838, a church was ready for them at St. Paul. Father Blanchet made Vancouver his headquarters until he received permission to move to St. Paul. Consequently, the earliest St. Paul church records are found in the Vancouver register.

The St. Paul registers begin in November 1839. The originals are preserved in the Archives of the Archdiocese of Portland. Most of the entries are written in French, with occasional use of English when the communicant was not French Canadian.
