General Delegation of Colombia
In 1971, the General Chapter approved the establishment of an international group of friars, who would live in Colombia, to promote the Carmelite way of life and foster vocations in Latin America. On 28 June 1973 the community of Bogota was canonically erected by the General Council.
After many changes in personnel within the community, the General Council, on 14 November 1986 erected it as a General Delegation, with the title "Titus Brandsma".
At present the Delegation has a house in Bogota and another one in Medellín, and has 5 religious.
