PMR HISTORY

Brief History Popular Mission Retreat in St. Xavier’s Region (Tamil Nadu)

            Under the leadership of Fr. Josehp Ayyamcolil VC the first popular mission retreat in Tamil language was conducted in St. John De Britto’s church, Chengam from August 7-12, 2005. The popular mission centre was in Divine Mercy Retreat centre, Elavur.  In 2008, Fr. Rapheal Koothur VC took charge of popular mission who is well-known in Tamil Nadu for preaching popular mission retreats. Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit he has written songs for popular mission and sought the help form our conferrers too. Now we have more than 100 mp3 songs recorded in his time.

The popular mission retreat centre was shifted to Vincentian house, Trichy in the month of February, 2013. Since Trichy is the center of Tamil Nadu, it is easy to travel anywhere for conducting the retreats.  From 2005 till 2020 April we have conducted 272 popular mission retreats in different dioceses of Tamil Nadu and also the different Tamil parishes of other states such as Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Delhi. The popular mission retreats are very much appreciated and welcomed by our Bishops and parish priests. It is to be noted that the retreats are conducted in all the three rites namely Latin, Syro-Malabar and Syro-Malankara. Our fathers in the region are very much co-operative and supportive for spreading the gospel through popular mission retreats.

Directors of the Popular Mission Retreats is St. Xavier’s Region (Tamil Nadu)
