Plastering An Ancient New Mexico Church

Clad in overalls, Albert Struck smoothes a trowelful of fresh adobe mud on a courtyard wall of the San Francisco de Asis Church in Ranchos de Taos, New Mexico. At 56, it’s a ritual he has re-enacted year after year. It is already starting to warm up at 8:30 a.m. but dozens of parishioners and volunteers are shoveling sand, mixing mud and slapping it on ancient thick walls of the venerable church here in the Ranchos de Taos Plaza. If it’s June it must be the annual “en jarre,” or plastering of the church, which takes place in the first two full weeks of the month. Struck said the annual mudding is a balm to him personally, and for parishioners it connects them like the straw that binds the adobe. “When I wake up in the morning I have aches and pains but in the day (when he is mudding) you don’t feel any pain,” said Struck. The “old ways work the best,” said Gabriel Romero, president of the church council and the project manager for the en jarre.
