The Military Bishopric of Colombia (Spanish: Obispado Castrense de Colombia) is a military ordinariate of the Roman Catholic Church. Immediately subject to the Holy See, it provides pastoral care to Roman Catholics serving in the Colombian Armed Forces and their families.

History[edit]

It was first established as a military vicariate on 13 October 1949, but the first military vicar was not appointed until 14 July 1950. It was elevated to a military ordinariate on 21 July 1986. The military ordinary's seat is located at the Military Cathedral of Jesus Christ Redeemer (Catedral Castrense Jesucristo Redentor) in the city of Bogota in Colombia.
