Saint Jean-Théophane Vénard, M.E.P. (born at Saint-Loup-sur-Thouet, Diocese of Poitiers, France, November 21, 1829; died in Tonkin, Vietnam, February 2, 1861) was a French Catholic missionary to Indo-China. He was a member of the Paris Foreign Missions Society. He was beatified in company with thirty-three other Catholic martyrs, most of whom were natives of Tonkin, Cochin-China, or China. Pope John Paul II canonized him, with nineteen other martyrs, in 1988.
