The project includes two stages of construction, and the National Directorate of France has launched a special campaign for this project.
The new philosophy seminary that is hoped to be built is located in the diocese of Tarahumara, a poor and mountainous region inhabited by an indigenous people, the Tarahumara, in the State of Chihuahua in the North of Mexico.
The diocese gives great importance to the Tarahumara people's culture and wants the seminarians to carry out the first stages of their formation in close contact with their people's cultural and religious traditions. The local population has already offered the land and is willing to contribute the necessary labor force. The PSSPA wants to be the main financial backer and is looking for other bodies that can collaborate.
In 2019, PSSPA contributed to the training of 23 seminarians of the Diocese.
According to official statistics published by the Holy See in 2020, the Diocese of Tarahumara has a surface area of 31,354 km2, 202,637 inhabitants,169.437 Catholics, 15 parishes, 5 churches/chapels, 17 diocesan priests, 19 religious priests, 4 seminarians, 12 religious brothers, 133 religious sisters, 13 schools, and 14 charitable institutions.
