Description

HISTORY AND PRESENT ACTIVITIES

Vincentian Fathers have been invited by Family Prayer Mission, Toronto, for many years to conduct programs there. The Family Prayer Mission, Toronto, headed by Mr. Rappai Nedumpara and assisted by Mr. Shiju Thomas promised to buy a property for us to start a retreat centre in Toronto. In 2014 they managed to buy a United Church property with all its buildings. On 29th November we officially started the preaching program there. The centre and Vincentian House was blessed by His Grace Archbishop Lawrence Saldanha (archbishop emeritus of Lahore) in the presence of Vicar General Fr. Ivan Camiliri, Msgr. Thomas Kalarathil, Director of priests’ personnel as well as of many priests, religious and hundreds of faithful. Fr. Joby Kachappilly is appointed the first Director, of Divine Retreat Centre, Toronto.
