This chapter begins by discussing that the number, variety, and importance of religious associations active in Antioquia steadily increased between 1850 to 1930. It explains that these associations were promoted mainly by parish priests and by the Jesuits, and to a lesser extent by the other congregations and the laity. It mentions some of the goals performed by these religious associations: caring for spiritual salvation of deceased brothers, honouring a particular saint, disseminating Catholic doctrine, sponsoring of charities. It notes that the peak of intense activity of religious organisations was during the 1970s. It also describes the development and achievements of the main religious organisations, following a chronological sequence according to the date of their foundation.
