The Women of Malvern

The Women of Malvern, an intergenerational group of Catholic women, have played an integral part in the function of Malvern Retreat House for decades. Many of our women’s retreats are designated specifically for Women of Malvern. Designated women’s retreats are hosted throughout the year representing various organizations and ministries. Any woman is welcome to attend a women’s retreat and learn more.

“Each year the feeling of peace stays with me a little longer when I leave Malvern, but I will keep coming back as long as God allows it.”

Sherry DiFonzo, Retreatant

A Prayer for Women

At that moment in time when I became me, God breathed into my body a soul. With purpose and love was my destiny set. She is woman – let that be her role. No role to be played on a limited stage, nor rewritten to mimic a man, but fashioned in fiber to deal with God’s world as only a woman can. So let me think as a woman, feel as a woman, love as a woman and seek with man the crossed pathways to Heaven, leaving footprints distinctly unique.
