Prayer of the Month

Helping Us

Reach out with Divine Trust

"Each one of us should give, then, as he has decided, not with regret or out of a sense of duty; for God loves the one who gives gladly" (2 Corinthians 9:7).

At Divine Trust, we lift up all our works of mercy to the Providence of God. No one in need is sent away empty. It is by our very actions that we are all called to show our faith and to live by Jesus command, Love your neighbour as you love yourself , (Romans 13:9).

We would be most grateful for your prayers and support to Be Doers Of The Word to the 3,000 less fortunate sisters and brothers who are very much part of our Divine Family.

You can help sponsor our charitable works in 3 ways:

Divine helping hand

For only 10,000 Indian Rupees yearly, your helping hand to Divine will provide a safe and loving home to a sick, disabled or destitute person. We care for about 2,150 of them.

You can assist us to give a life of love and dignity for our 100 residents of St. Vincent's AIDS Home of whom 13 are children.

We greatly need you as our partner in Christ to bring God's Peace to our 500 residents of Divine Care Centre for the Mentally Ill.

Divine child sponsor

For only 10,000 Indian Rupees yearly, you can support us to fully care for a child. We have 300 children in our Divine Family. Help us to give them a good and secure future.

Divine room sponsor for the sick and the disabled

Your support in sponsoring a room (with attached bath) in Divine for a total sum of 50,000 Indian Rupees will enable someone who is in need to experience God's Love and Healing to attend a retreat comfortably.

The room will be given for the sponsor and immediate family only when you come to attend a retreat at Divine Retreat Centre. At all other times, it will be open to the public specifically for sick patients. We will issue a sponsorship card for all room sponsor donors to be produced upon arrival at Divine Retreat Centre.

Our prayers and support will be a great blessing for us to care of our sisters and brothers in Christ who are less fortunate in life. "Taking care of the poor is the kind of offering that please God in Heaven." (Tobit 4:11) Please join us in our efforts to make Divine a Home of Love!
