From 30 July - 04 August 2017the CALLED...GIFTED...SENT FORTH 2017 Annual Retreat & Formation for Priests, Religious & Lay Leaders in Ministry will be conducted in Divine Retreat Centre, Kerala India. This annual retreat has transformed and converted the hearts of many who are serving in our Lord's vineyard. It is a special occasion to commit yourself to an anointed time set apart for Jesus - to allow Jesus to speak to your heart.

“So, our vocation is to go, not just to one parish, not just to one diocese, but all over the world; and do what? To set people's hearts on fire, to do what the Son of God did. He came to set the world on fire in order to inflame it with His love.”
St. Vincent de Paul

Is this retreat meant for you? If you are called by the Lord as a priest or religious or want to serve the Lord whether it is in a church ministry or in a call God has placed in your heart, then it is meant for you. It is a special grace to come and experience in a personal tangible way how to answer Jesus' Call and to serve joyfully at all times.

Do I feel truly empowered by the Holy Spirit to help set hearts on fire for Jesus?

Is daily and ministry life hectic that I have no time to experience a personal retreat?

Am I busy ministering to others but have no time for Jesus to minister to 
my heart, my mind, my soul?

What is my Call from God - how am I answering His Call? 

Is my ministry becoming burdensome, dry and rife...just a routine?

Is there joy, peace and love in my ministry?

If any of the above quesions has touched a chord in your heart, this Divine Annual CALLED ...GIFTED SENT FORTH 2017 Retreat & Spiritual Formation for Priests, Religious & Lay Leaders in Ministry is an anointed time of Grace to sit, listen, be renewed and empowered at the Feet of Jesus!
