He studied medicine, and in 1639 offered to work as a medic for the Jesuit missionaries in America. Missionary to the Hurons, working as a donné, a layman who worked without pay. Worked in a hospital in Quebec, Canada in 1640. Assistant to Saint Isaac Jogues on his missionary travels.

While they were in captivity, Father Isaac received Rene into the Jesuits as a religious brother. First martyr in North America. His death by tomahawk in the head led to his patronage of people who work with or receive anesthesia.
