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 become Doers Of the Word to 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 10,000 Indian rupees annually, 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 help us to provide a home of love and dignity for the 100 residents of the 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 annually, you can support 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 aid in sponsoring a room (with attached bath) in Divine for a total sum of 50,000 Indian rupees will enable someone to attend a retreat comfortably.

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

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.
