About Malvern

Located on 125 acres of wooded countryside, the Malvern Retreat House is a Catholic retreat house for men, women, families, married couples, religious and clergy. It is also a place where Christian people of other denominations may also discern, strengthen and renew their personal relationship with Jesus Christ, self and others.

Owned and operated by the Laymen’s Retreat League, Malvern Retreat House is a spiritual sanctuary with a long-standing Catholic retreat history. As the largest Catholic retreat house in the U.S., this spiritual sanctuary hosts 350 private rooms, two chapels, five oratories, a large conference center and a dining hall in the Main Retreat House. In addition, a self-contained building – The McShain-Horstmann Family Life Center – offers 50 handicap-accessible rooms. In this building, individuals are offered amenities including a private bath in each room. In essence, Malvern Retreat House offers two separate retreat environments; the Main Retreat House and the Family Life Center.

While we feel most comfortable at our Six Three Retreat in June, Malvern has many other options for anyone seeking the peace and quite of a Malvern retreat.

Well over one million individuals have participated in the retreat experience since 1912 with approximately 20,000 men, women, families, married couples, and youth now making the journey to this countryside sanctuary each year.
