Family Retreats

Come, And Grow in Holiness.

Families share a unique and holy connection deserving to be nurtured. From parent-children relationships to the bonds between siblings, our familial relationships can bring us closer to God. At Malvern Retreat House, our family retreats are based on the example set by the Holy Family. These events not only provide families with opportunities to attend structured activities, but also give them the time to wander the grounds together in conversation and reflection.

All members of the family will benefit from our retreat experiences, including:

  • Mothers
  • Fathers
  • Grandparents
  • Children
  • Siblings
  • Adult family members
  • Mother & father figures
  • And more

“We need simplicity to pray together as a family…This is what it means to pray in the family and it is what makes the family stronger: Prayer.”

“Some of the best moments with my Dad were spent on the wooded pathways in silence together, enjoying the nature that Malvern and its 125 acres afford.”

Larry Bucci, Retreatant

A Prayer for Family

O dear Jesus, I humbly implore You to grant Your special graces to our family. May our home be the shrine of peace, purity, love, labor and faith. I beg You, dear Jesus, to protect and bless all of us, absent and present, living and dead. O Mary, loving Mother of Jesus, and our Mother, pray to Jesus for our family, for all the families of the world, to guard the cradle of the newborn, the schools of the young and their vocations. Amen.
