Official complaint filed with Mexican government

Attached a document containing a complaint against the irrational exploitation of forests in the Sierra Tarahumara. So that you can make it known to the groups of people where you work . Pastoral agents want to make the voice, of the communities we serve, public and for centuries has remained silent.

TCHF Oregon website goes bilingual

You CAN teach an old website new tricks!

After a lot of work and encouragement from Fr. David, I am happy to roll out a brand new feature of the TCHF website.  We have gone bilingual.
You will notice a new item in the left panel labeled "Languages".  We now support both english and spanish languages. 
The content has not changed, we just now have spanish versions of it all.  Just click the selector to switch between languages at any time.


Preserving a heritage, Ensuring a future

Imagine lives so impoverished that most of the community's children die before reaching the age of five. The children are part of a tribe of 60,000 Tarahumara Indians, who live in caves and primitive huts, with unsafe drinking water, parasites, and devastating malnutrition. Picture all this in an area of unsurpassed scenic beauty, with mountains and canyons and a rich cultural heritage - just hours from El Paso, Texas. This is the situation that Father Verplancken found when he came to Creel, Mexico in the early 1960's.
