Also spelled Sebastian Rasle. Jesuit missionary; born in 1654 in Pontarlier, France; died on August 23, 1724 in Norridgewock Mission, Maine. He entered the Jesuit novitiate at Dôle, France, studied theology at Lyons, France, and arrived at Quebec, Canada in 1689. He began his missionary labors at an Abenaki village near Quebec, to which he returned after an interval of two years spent among the Illinois. In 1705 the English burned his church, part of the violence of Queen Anne's War. After the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713, which ceded the territory to England, Rale remained and rebuilt his church. He was attacked by Mohawks on August 23, 1724; he and several of his flock were killed and scalped.
