“fray Pablo de Betancur, ministro de la doctrina de los indios chichimecos del Cerro Gordo…y dijo misa..”
29 de junio de 1640


Fray Pablo de Betancur nació en el pueblo de Tepozotlán hacia 1590, tomó el hábito franciscano, y profesó en el Convento Grande de San Francisco de la Ciudad de México. Existen testimonios documentales donde constan los bautismos de indios que hizo en San Mateo Huichapan a partir de 1612, y los celebrados años más tarde en San Bartolomé Tepetitlán. El día 29 de junio de 1640, don Alonso de Tovar fundó la Villa de Cadereyta, y encargó al venerable padre Betancur, la celebración de la primera misa y del inicio a la construcción del convento de San Pedro y San Pablo, con el objetivo de ser punto de partida, en la evangelización de los indios chichimecos jonaces del Cerro Gordo y sus contornos. En una época de desafíos, tocó a Fray Pablo de Betancur ser pionero, en el proyecto misional emprendido desde el convento de Cadereyta. Los feligreses de este templo, celebramos con júbilo su ejemplo, y le dedicamos este sincero reconocimiento.

English translation:
"Brother Pablo de Betancur, minister of the doctrine of the Chichimec Indians of Cerro Gordo ... and said Mass .."
June 29, 1640


Friar Pablo de Betancur was born in the town of Tepozotlán around 1590. He joined the Franciscan order and was ordained at the Great Convent of San Francisco in Mexico City. There is documentary evidence of his baptizing Indians in San Mateo Huichapan in 1612 and others years later in San Bartolomé Tepetitlán. On June 29, 1640, Alonso de Tovar founded the Villa de Cadereyta and commissioned the venerable Father Betancur to celebrate the first Mass and to begin the construction of the Convent of San Pedro and SanPablo. This was to be a point of departure in spreading the Gospel to the Chichimeca-Jonaz Indians of Cerro Gordo and the surrounding area. In an age of challenges, Pablo de Betancur was a pioneer in the missionary project undertaken from the Convent of Cadereyta. As parishioners of this temple,
