After the collpase of a lateral wall and the roof of the Church of Nabalam, Yucatán, municipality of Temozón, the Commission of Sacred Art, in coordination with the INAH will determine the causes of the accident and will be in charge of the restoration of this building more than three centuries old. INAH will use federal funds that are granted in this type of cases.
In this regard, priest Jorge Martinez Ruz, Spokesman of the Archdiocese of Yucatan said: “Since it happened two days ago, the first thing was to report it immediately to the ecclesiastical authority, that is, to the bishops and the Archbishop. And they in turn would notify it to the corresponding authorities, including of course the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) and the Sacred Art Commission of the Archdiocese.
“The Sacred Art Commission and the INAH will determine what must be done, because those buildings are the patrimony of the nation, the Church has them in custody; but the Archdiocese does not own these historical monuments”, said Martinez Ruz.
“Fortunately, this issue was attended from the first moment it happened, and there was no one inside the church at the time of the incident,” the archdiocesan spokesman explained.
“We are aware of the seriousness of this situation, we are worried, we also regret it but it was attended righ at the moment it happened, and the protocol was activated to provide a solution, always in mutual and close collaboration with the INAH”, the priest continued.
Finally, Father Jorge said that the Church is currently assessing damages, so it is obviously not open to the public; and no masses are being held in this town, but he assured that the parishioners that usually attend this religious site in the Yucatan will have their church back shortly.
