Sommerfeld Mennonite Church (Sommerfelder Mennonitengemeinde) The Sommerfeld Mennonite Church was part of the migration of conservative Mennonites of Dutch-Russian background from Canada to Mexico in the 1920s. They emigrated from Canada because of new education laws in Manitoba and Saskatchewan that required all children to attend English-language schools. They established a colony, Santa Clara, in the state of Chihuahua. Some members eventually left Mexico for Bolivia in the 1960s, and others returned to Canada in the last quarter of the 20th century. The group has about 2,075 members in nine colonies, five in Chihuahua and two each in Campeche and Tamaulipas. Other congregations related to this group are in Canada and the United States.[1]
