Padre Pio Retreat Centre


"Go into the whole world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation." (Mk: 16:15)

Padre Pio retreat Centre is the first retreat centre of the St. Francis province Capuchins in the Diocese of Quilon. It is situated in the heart of the Quilon district along with St. Antony's Friary, Tillery. Padre Pio Retreat centre began as the small prayer group meeting with the local people of Tillery, Rev. Frs. Albert Koilparambil and Simon Peter as its spiritual heads. Under the leadership of Fr. Sebastian Kakkariyil the ministry of the centre was flourished and enriched with the grace of God. It was he who thought of having a magazine in the name of retreat center. Thus 'Swargiya Abhishegam' began to function. It is the spiritual magazine of the retreat centre which enriches the lives of the people with spiritual thoughts and guidelines. The retreat center also began a marriage bureau. It helps the youth to find out their life partners. The main focus of this marriage bureau is to prepare them for a meaningful married life.
