DIVINE RETREAT CENTRE

Peace be with you...

The Divine Retreat Centre is the largest Catholic retreat centre in the world. Over 10 million pilgrims from all over the world have attended retreats here since 1990. It is an achievement possible only through the grace of God. The centre which started as a preaching ministry, has now evolved into a home of love by the providence of God. May God's grace be with you.

Monthly Reflection by
Fr. Augustine Vallooran VC

The mission of the Divine Retreat Centre came into being not as a human venture, but by the initiative of God.

Today, we pray for expecting parents

Lord Jesus, today we bring to Your presence - our pregnant wives, sisters, mothers and friends - and their spouses. We pray that each of these men and women are mightily anointed to become Godly Christian parents. We pray that the fathers, the mothers' wombs and their babies are blessed. May the men who are to provide care and love, do so, with Your special touch. May Your angels, Saint Anne and Mother Mary give the mothers-to-be relief from their discomforts. Bless the women with safe and happy confinement and smooth labour and the men with hands and hearts willing to love sacrificially. Amen.
