Retreats for Men


brothers_sCome to the Quiet of a Malvern Retreat

Share in the tranquility, peace and blessings of this Catholic retreat house nestled in the woods with the Men of Malvern.

The Malvern Retreat House is known for its time-honored weekend Catholic retreats for men starting on Friday evening and ending on Sunday morning. Private adoration time in our magnificent oratories, uplifting liturgies, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, communal prayer with men for the Stations of the Cross, fellowship and group faith-sharing, all comprise this Catholic retreat weekend. Retreat directors vary with each retreat, so be sure to check our schedule. While staying with us, you will experience our gift of hospitality; clean, comfortable, private rooms and delicious meals served by our retreat-friendly staff.

Non-Catholics are always welcome to participate in a retreat. Even if you have never made a retreat before, pray about a weekend when you may have a few hours to spend on retreat. Come alone, or with a friend! Make a decision today to register for a retreat or call (610) 644-0400(610) 644-0400 for more information.
