Archbishop Mark Haverland travelled to Colombia this month for his triennial visitation to the Diocese of New Granada. Highlights of the visit included a meeting with the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Manizales, attending the ACC diocesan synod, and visiting parishes and missions in the districts around Armenia and Periera with Bishop German Orrego-Hurtado.
Archbishop Haverland reports that he is pleased and impressed with the work being done in Colombia and Venezuela: "It was lovely to see notable progress in the diocese since my last visit prior to Coronatide. There are new buildings and new clergy, and a good group of men preparing for ordination, as well as new humanitarian ministries."
