Charis Bhavan Retreat Centre, a haven for all those seeking God Almighty’s presence took shape in the mind of Fr. James Manjackal, the founding father, and it took concrete form on November 25, 1989 with the generous donation of land by Fr. Devasia Kuzhupil. The Centre is being guided and marshaled by the congregation of the Missionaries of St. Francis de Sales. The center has beendoing commendable work, for the past on decade, among people of all walks of life, attracting them to a blissful relationship with God.
