Divine Mercy Retreat Centre

Director's Message

“Be merciful as your heavenly Father is merciful” (Lk 6:36)


Basic emotion of every human, to some extent of all living beings, is love. We feel complete when we have persons around us to love us and for us to love. But when we are ignored we feel the pain of being lost. But we never turn to the proclamation from God that “I love you” (Is 43:4). His love is everlasting and unconditional. He is merciful and compassionate. But to experience that love we need to sit at his feet quietly to listen to him. We need to find sometime to retreat ourselves from the hurly burlys of the world. This is why there are retreat centres in different part of the world. One such retreat centre is DIVINE MERCY Retreat Centre at Elavur in Chennai-Mylapore Archdiocese.

“Come and see” all that I can say now while inviting you to Elavur DMRC. Let us taste the love and mercy of the Lord to be merciful and loving like Him.

God bless you all

With love

Fr. Varghese Parekkattil VC
