Fr Joseph Edattu VC
Fr Joseph Edattu VC presently serves as the Director the Divine Retreat Centre UK. Soon after his ordination in December 2006, he was appointed as the Administrator of Tabor Retreat Centre, Mumbai, until 2012, when he was appointed as the Assistant Director of the Divine Retreat Centre, Muringoor and Chalakudy (English and Malayalam Section), under the leadership of Fr George Panackal VC and Fr Augustine Vallooran VC. In 2014, Fr Joseph came to the UK as the Administrator and Associate Director of a newly inaugurated centre: the Divine Retreat Centre UK, where he has worked tirelessly to spread the Good News. During the Covid pandemic, Fr Joseph spearheaded the transition to online ministry, starting with the daily livestreaming. This grew rapidly into many other ministries, like the Bible study, Under my Roof and Bambino programmes. Pre-covid, Fr Joseph travelled the globe and has taken the Gospel to various countries such as Singapore, Australia, Africa, Germany, Malaysia and many more. Post-Covid, he continues to travel the world virtually, delivering the Good News to tens of thousands daily.
