Pareja, FRANCISCO, missionary, probably b. at Auñon in the Diocese of Toledo, Spain, date unknown; d. in Mexico, January 25, 1628. He was sent to Florida with eleven other Franciscans, and arrived at St. Augustine in 1593 or early in 1594. He labored as a missionary among the savages of the peninsula, notably at San Juan on the coast, and then became guardian of the monastery of the Immaculate Conception, at St. Augustine. He is also styled "custos", and must have held the office before 1613, when the custody was elevated to the rank of a province under the patronage of St. Helena. Subsequently, he joined the province of the Holy Gospel in Mexico. Father Pareja is noted for having published the first books in the language of an Indian tribe within the United States, the Timuquanan, and may for that purpose have gone to Mexico. His various works are: "Catecismo en lengua castellana y timuquana" (Mexico, 1612); "Catecismo y breve expositión de la doctrina cristiana" (Mexico, 1612); "Confesionario en lengua castellana y timuquana" (Mexico, 1613); "Gramatica de la lengua timuquana de Florida" (Mexico, 1614); "Catecismo de la doctrina cristiana en lengua timuquana" (Mexico, 1617); "Catecismo y examen para los que comulgan, en lengua castellana y timuquana" (Mexico, 1627).

"We call sacred orders the deaconship and priesthood, for we read that the primitive Church had only those orders."
-- Pope Urban II, at the Council of Benevento (A.D. 1091); explaining the boundaries of Holy Orders as set forth in Holy Scripture and in the authentic writings of the Apostolic Fathers (from the article "Subdeacon")
