DIVINE RETREAT CENTRE

Peace be with you...

Welcome to the official website of the Divine Retreat Centre, Kerala, India

The Divine Retreat Centre is the largest Catholic retreat centre in the world. Over 15 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 out as a preaching ministry, has now evolved into a home of love by the providence of God.

This website is our effort to keep in touch with our beloved retreatants and anyone in need of the Lord's comforting touch. As you glance through the pages of our site, we hope that it is not only informative, but also provides a spiritual experience for you. Let it always be etched into your hearts that Divine remembers and prays for you and your family everyday.

May God's grace be with you.

Fr. Augustine Vallooran VC

Monthly Reflection by
Fr. Augustine Vallooran VC

Everything happening to us is an unfolding of the plan of God which is revealed in His word made known to us.

Today, we pray for the silent helpers of Your ministry

Lord Jesus, today we bring to You, Your silent supporters on this earth. Lord, bless and honour those who clean the pews, decorate the halls for worship, do secretarial work, wash the toilets and do odd jobs behind the scenes - the sound technicians, the volunteer staff, the drivers, families of ministers, the launderers, the babysitters and all those who faithfully and quietly support ministries with their time and money, for Your glory. A prayer for their families too. May their rewards come from You. And frequently remind each of us that each role comes from You, so respect all jobs, all brethren. Amen.
