From the 6th to the 8th of January, just gone by, in the Casa de Maria in Manizales (Colombia) the chapter assembly of the Titus Brandsma General Delegation took place under the presidency of the Prior General, Fernando Millán Romeral, O.Carm., along with the Councillor General for the Americas, Raúl Maraví Cabrera, O.Carm., and the Delegate General, Luis Javier Villegas Posada, O.Carm. At this meeting, the members looked at the various projects of the Delegation and put forward a number of strategies for the coming years. During the assembly Bro. Jhonatan Castañeda, O.Carm. was ordained to the diaconate. The atmosphere of the assembly was one of great joy, shared by the “carmelos domésticos” and other associated groups that were present.
Later on, the Prior General, accompanied by the Councillor General conducted the canonical visitation of the three houses in Colombia that belong to the Italian province (Arjona, Aguachica y Bogotá) in which it was possible to see the various projects that are under the care of our brothers in this country.
