America

Carmel existed in the American land as early as 1583 in Brazil, founded by the Province of Portugal in the city of Olinda, Pernambuco. The mission in the United States, especially in North America, on the other hand, was founded in 1864 by the two German missionaries of the Lower German Province: Cyril Knoll and Xavier Huber. In 1889, a group of friars formed of Edward Southwell, Michael Daly, and Philip McDonnel, moved from the Province of Ireland to begin the foundation of Carmel in New York. As regards the mission in Latin America, the foundations took place in the following years: in Venezuela in 1922 by the Catalonia Province and 1954 by the Betica Province; in Argentina, the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico in 1920 from the Arago-Castile and Valencia Province; in Peru in 1949 by the Pure Heart of Mary-North American Province; in Bolivia in 1956 by the Province of Malta; in Mexico in 1995 by the Pure Heart of Mary Province; in Trinidad and Tobago in 1996 by the Saint Elias Province of New York; in Colombia in 1954 by the Betica Province; in 2002 by the Italian Province; and in El Salvador in 2014 by the Pure Heart of Mary Province.
