Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish - Yecora, Mexico

The friars first came here in 1985, though the parish was founded in the seventeenth century by Jesuit missionaries. They serve the needs of the people of the town of Yecora as well as many outlying villages and ranches. A major part of their ministry involves the Pimas and other indigenous peoples in this mountainous area. Their work here continues despite rough conditions and isolation, preaching the good news and building up the people of God.
