Frequently Asked Questions
What Happens on an Overnight Retreat?
We offer different types of retreats at Malvern. During our traditional overnight retreats, the schedule is set, starting with 5:00 PM registration on Friday and closing with Mass at 11:00 AM on Sunday. In addition to four conferences by the retreat director, you will have an opportunity to go to Reconciliation if you wish, say the Rosary and walk the Stations of the Cross, alone or with others. You may participate in discussions, have a private conference with a retreat director, and enjoy time set aside for meditation. A highlight for Catholics who wish to have a personal visit with our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament is Private Adoration, which is provided in four magnificent Oratories (small chapels). If you attend one of our themed retreats, the schedule may vary but contains many of the same elements of prayer, meditation, Reconciliation, discussion and Eucharistic liturgies.
Do I Have to Make a Reservation for a Retreat?
Advance registrations are suggested although last-minute openings are usually available. For more information or to make reservations, call the Retreat House at 610-644-0400 or register online at malvernretreat.com. You will receive a confirmation in the mail one week prior to your retreat.
Is There a Dress Code at Malvern? What Should I Pack?
Please dress comfortably but in good taste. For services in the Chapels and Oratories we prefer no tank tops, T-shirts, shorts or bare feet. Bring three changes of comfortable clothes. Towels, wash cloths and soap are provided. Toiletries are available for purchase at the Gift Shop. Bring comfortable shoes if you intend to walk the grounds. All meals are provided by our dining staff.
When Does the Weekend Retreat Begin and End?
For most weekend retreats, registration at 5:00 p.m. on Friday and lasts through the closing 11:00 a.m. Liturgy on Sunday.
What are the Accommodations? Do I Have to Share a Room?
For retreats held in the Main Retreat House, which includes St. Joseph Hall, Our Lady’s (Immaculate Conception & Assumption Halls), and Corrigan Hall, each person has a comfortable private room that includes a bed, an easy chair, a desk with a chair, a sink, mirror and a clothes rack. The bathroom is in the hallway. Our Family Life Center has private rooms with a bath and a double and single bed. These are usually double occupancy, with a limited number of single rooms available.
