On April 20, 2000, Reverend Dennis O’Donnell received a phone call from Sister Pauline Mary McShain, daughter of Mary and John McShain, offering to donate $2.9 million from the dissolution of the McShain charities fund to Malvern Retreat House. Reverend O’Donnell accepted this offer and set out to construct a new center that could accommodate married couples, families, small groups and individuals.
