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

Sin an individual’s personal choice to walk out of the Father’s house. Reconciliation is the Father’s personal embrace of restoration.

Today, we pray for all the families

Lord Jesus, today we bring to You all the families in the world. Lord, the evil one is destroying families and close relationships. We pray that every family is protected and that strife is routed in Your mighty name. May members of families learn the importance of praying - together and for each other. And through the power of that prayer, may we always live in physical and emotional togetherness and love. Amen.
