"The Spirit of the Lord is up on me, because he has chosen me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free the oppressed"

Bearing this mission of the Divine Master and inspired by the apostolic zeal of their Patron St. Vincent De Paul, the Vincentia Congregation of India, remains committed to their charism "Evangelizare Pauperibus". Parithrana Retreat centre anchors, many of the National and International Ministries in the evangelization network of the Vincentian Congregation. Parithrana is very specially known for its Popular Mission Retreats, which are organized by the Retreat centre in its capacity as the Popular Mission Centre of the St. Joseph's Province of the Vincentian Congregation

Parithrana: The wealth of the word

The term 'Parithrana' stands for the "The House of Redemption". As the name indicates the 'Great redeemer' has in many ways practised His mission of redemption through the instrumentality of Parithrana. The redeemer stays and the redemption continues. Welcome to Parithrana, the House of redemption.

To brief the Providence

Opened on December 1992, Parithrana was ably guided by Fr. George Vadakkekara its first director for 4 years. Fr. Michael Panachickel V.C. succeeded him for another term of four years. Anointed ministers of the word have always been a blessing on the Parithrana ministries. Lakhs of people, from different cultures, religions and nations live as witness to the redeeming love of Jesus in the Parithrana way (Redeemed way). The Providence of the Divine has gone into many lives through the Parithrana Ministries.

Popular Mission Retreats: Even to the Corners

Initiated in the graceful inspiration of the Lord, St. Vincent De Paul pioneered this dynamic catechising technique in the Catholic Church. Vincentian Congregation living to the vision of their patron St. Vincent has committed themselves to the preaching of the Mission retreats in different parts of the world. Parithrana organizes the popular mission retreats, in central and southern Kerala. Parithrana gratefully acknowledges the gift of a dynamic and experienced team of preachers. Every alternative weeks of the year are set apart for the preaching of the Popular Mission Retreats. The congested schedule and the queuing of requests tell of its appreciation among the people of God.

Residential Retreats: With Him, for a week

This house of redemption offers opportunities to people from every walks of life to reside and recollect at the Centre. Every first and second weeks of the month there will be residential retreats for 4 days beginning from Sunday to Thursday. Even though prior registration is appreciated we accommodate almost everyone who comes. Usually growth retreats are offered at Parithrana. Its simple and beautiful landscape thrilling solitude and fraternal concerns soothe the trailing minds to receive the best from the Lord.

Bible Conventions: Come on and Celebrate

Thousands gather to experience the liberating touch of the word, in the conventions led by Parithrana team. Preparatory sessions and follow up programs are offered by Parithrana to the renewed communities emerged from the Parithrana conventions.

Perpetual Adoration Centre: In To Him

The perpetual adoration centre has turned to be the source and strength of the Parithrana Ministries. A perpetually adoring community at Parithrana has turned to be a heavenly flavor in the world intercession network. Even the visitors to the artistic creativity and architectural style of the chapel at Parithrana, go captured in to the Eucharistic presence of the Lord and the litanies of praises and petitions echoed in.
