Jesus commissioned His Disciples to, "Go to all the world and preach the gospel to all creation." (Mark 16:15) This vision - of bringing the light of the gospel and the comfort of Christ to the whole world - was entrusted to the church.

With the coming of the electronic media, this mission of the church gains a whole new dimension – to reach every person and every home across the globe through television.

This prophetic call has urged the Divine Retreat Centre to commit itself wholeheartedly to the proclamation of the gospel with Divine TV - the television wing of Divine Vision Network (DVN)

Divine TV first went on air in the UK, Europe and the Middle East on 24 December, 2008. This was quickly followed by the launch of Divine Vision Network in USA and Canada on 25th May 2009.

There is a great demand from the rest of the world to be able to watch Divine TV, the 24-hour commercial-free television channel of Divine Vision Network (DVN) part of DRC, the world's largest Catholic retreat centre.

DVN Online TV was launched on 04 October 2009. Divine TV is now available on the internet in every country across the globe, at any time, every single day.

Divine Vision reached Indian homes in 2011. Shri Oommen Chandy, Chief Minister of Kerala, launched the telecast at a glittering event held in Divine Retreat Centre, Muringoor on 20th November, 2011. Divine Vision programmes are being telecast through Goodness TV. Please contact your nearest cable operator to get Divine Vision in your home.

Divine Vision - become our Divine evangelisation partner

The television media production wing of the Divine Retreat Centre - Divine Vision - has taken up the challenge to "Go and proclaim the Gospel to all Creation"(Mark 16:15). The late Holy Father, Pope John Paul II said, "The electronic revolution opens up wonderful possibilities for spreading the gospel". Divine Vision was launched in 2002. It was his inspiration that urged us to take on the challenge to start a television ministry that has now blossomed into a 24-hour commercial free Catholic gospel channel - Divine Television. Our aim is to take the Word of God into the living rooms of all homes around the world.

As a non-profit Catholic television ministry, we need your help.

Divine TV ministry is a huge financial responsibility and an urgent mission God has placed in our hearts. We are moving forward with total faith in God's providence.

Regular donations are tremendously important to us. It will help us plan and produce quality programmes and invest in the necessary infrastructure to run a 24-hour commercial-free Catholic gospel channel.

Join us as an integral partner of our Divine TV ministry - become a monthly donor.
