Malvern Retreat House hosts a Dorothy Day Retreat on Tuesday, Sept. 26 to Thursday, Sept. 28 at the Family Life Center, 315 South Warren Avenue, Malvern.
Directed by Dr. Carmina Chapp, this unique mid-week retreat for men and women will offer an experience of the Benedictine spirituality of Dorothy Day, who in her life integrated her love of God, neighbor and nature.
Retreatants will experience this integration through spiritual talks, quiet time and some light hands-on work — for those interested, spinning wool fleece into yarn — the “ora et labora” of St. Benedict.
The themes of the retreat include simplicity of life, hospitality and appreciation for God’s creation. Participants will be given resources for incorporating Benedictine spirituality into their busy lives.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
