The Lord has selected and strengthened Renewal Retreat Centre (RRC), a Catholic Spiritual Organisation with compassionate love in abundance to glorify God’s name and to sanctify Bangalore and its people. Renewal Retreat Centre was founded with the exceptional protection from The Immaculate Mary and has become a haven of solace and hope for millions of people from all religions residing in the city. Renewal Retreat provides a path to experience God in their lives and to seek renewal and positive change in their relationship with God.
Renewal Retreat Centre was founded by CST Fathers in 1994. Each and every person arriving at the RRC has experienced the watchful care of God in guiding the RRC, holding its hands and guiding it. Every single individual who attended retreats conducted in RRC gets the valuable opportunity to receive God’s healing grace and thereby attains a degree of spiritual renewal and to experience the streams of blessing from God to his people.
Renewal Retreat Centre is a relief and a shelter for a large number of people who are seeking answers for their despairing, hopeless and unresolved crisis’ in their lives, and is a gift from the Lord for Bangalore.
From the official website: St James teaches us, “Faith without deeds is dead” (James 2:26). It is by our very actions that we are called to express our faith and to live by Jesus’ command Love your neighbour as you love yourself (Romans 13:9). Through different social and charitable activities organised at the RRC, God gives us the opportunity to enhance our beliefs and to testify our faith through our lives. By the grace of God, all retreats at the centre are performed using Virunnu (Banquet) Fund, without charging any fees which makes Renewal Retreat Centre unique.
The good lord who valued the minuscule contribution of a widow over the bigger contributions made by many rich but self-righteous men, who fed thousands of people with five loaves of bread and two fish, has been miraculously organising all services in this centre for more than fourteen years, with the amounts donated by many generous individuals, who contribute a small portion of their earnings towards the Virunnu (Banquet) Fund.
