Upcoming Retreats at Malvern Retreat House
Saint Blaise-Curran Memorial Retreat
Sometimes the frantic pace of life can leave us with little time to deal with growing our personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Finding the time and place can be an obstacle. A weekend retreat can be the time and the Malvern Retreat House the place. We invite you to join many of the men of OLA Parish for a retreat at Malvern the weekend of February 2-4, 2018. If interested in attending, please call Anthony Gentile at 610-513-6834 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information or to register, please visit malvernretreat.com or call 610-644-0400.
