Father Kim Dae-Geon was the first Korean to receive priesthood from Shanghai, China on August 17, 1845. On August 31 of the same year, he and 13 others, including Bishop Pereol and Father Dableu, returned to Korea on the "Raphael" and landed here on the shore of Yongsu-ri on September 28.

Father Andrea Dae-Geon Kim and his companions dedicated their first Mass at Yongsu-ri coast, and after repairing the ship, they took off and landed at Nabawi of Jeonlabuk-do. Father Kim Dae-geon was arrested in 1846 while serving as a priest in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do, and was severely tortured. In September of that year, he was sentenced to death.

The ‘Raphael’ ship is restored and displayed in the memorial.
