In the Diocese of Trichy, we started our ministry in the year of 2011. We have 11acres of land with coconut and mango trees. Here, we have Vincentian Ashram, Divine Grace Retreat centre and centre of Tamil Popular Mission Retreat. It is situated at Choriyampatty, near to Thuvarankurichy. It is located in Trichy - Madurai highway (48km away from Trichy and 79km to Madurai). This house was inaugurated by the Superior General of Vincentian Congregation Very. Rev. Fr. Varghese Parapuram on 24 September 2011and the same day it was blessed by Most Rev. Dr. Antony Devotta, Bishop of Trichy. Fr. Xavier Anthony Samy and Fr. George Kunnampurath were appointed here as Priest in Charge and Procurator. Fr. Thomas Thoyalil took charge as the first Superior and Director of this place on 21 May 2012. This place was declared as the centre for Tamil Popular Mission Retreat in January, 2013. New residential block was blessed by Most Rev. Dr. Antony Devotta, Bishop of Trichy and opened by the Provincial Superior Very Rev. Dr. George Arackal V.C on 05 April 2014.
Every first week of the month we conduct residential retreat for five days and one day prayer service on every second Saturday. Second and Fourth week of the month we conduct Popular Mission Retreat. We conduct some special retreats on holidays and Bible convention in the month of April/May. The Divine Grace Retreat centre is slowly getting known by the people.
