At the end of 2018, the community of Trappist nuns of Humocaro (Venezuela) sent three sisters to found a community in El Rosál, Cundinamarca (Colombia). It is the first Trappist foundation in Colombia. The sisters have acquired a suitable land where there is a large family home that they are developing.
The sisters wish to make a small guesthouse in one of the buildings which would include: a porter’s lodge with a parlour and a small shop, and two guest rooms. This involves renovating existing bathrooms, electricity, doors, painting, windows, etc. The total cost is estimated at 12,480 euros.
