 The Bethlehemite Brothers. The Bethlehemite Brothers are a religious institute founded in Guatemala in 1653 and restored in 1984. Their official name is the Order of Bethlehemite Brothers (Ordo Fratrum Bethlemitarum: O.F.B.), or the Bethlehem Brothers (Hermanos de Belén). The members, like the members of two other Catholic religious orders, are known as Bethlehemites (Betlemitas). They are also known as the Order of the Brothers of Our Lady of Bethlehem (Orden de los Hermanos de Nuestra Señora de Bethlehem). In 2007, the order had 17 members, living in a single community.
