It is with deep sorrow and a sense of anguish that I inform you that in the afternoon of 20 June, in Cerocahui, Tarahumara, Jesuit Fathers Javier Campos SJ and Joaquín Mora SJ were murdered while trying to defend a man who was seeking refuge in the church and who was being pursued by an armed person.
This happened in the context of the violence that this country is experiencing.
At this moment, we are working with the federal and state authorities to ensure the safety of our Jesuit brothers Esteban Cornejo SJ, Jesús Reyes SJ, and Jesús Zaglul SJ, and the pastoral team of the parish.
We publicly condemn this tragedy and demand a prompt investigation and safety for the community. We will keep you informed about the next actions that we, as the Mexican Jesuit Province, will be taking.
I ask you to join us in prayer for them.

I am shocked and saddened by this news.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Jesuits in Mexico and the families of the men.
We have to stop violence in our world and so much unnecessary suffering.
