Retreats for Women


sistersInWoods_sCome to the Quiet of a Malvern Retreat

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

The Malvern Retreat House is known for its Catholic women’s weekend retreats and Evenings of Recollection. Our weekends, whether the retreat is in the Family Life Center or the Main Retreat House offers private adoration time, uplifting liturgies, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, communal prayer with women for the Stations of the Cross, socialization and group faith-sharing. 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.

Christians of all denominations 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 for more information.
