Looking to strengthen your relationship with God, partake in fellowship, and participate in activities that enhance your spiritual growth? All men and women in their 20s and 30s, single and married, are invited to attend Malvern Retreat House’s annual young adult retreat, “The New Evangelization — I Believe, and Therefore, Speak…” from May 30-31 to connect with the Lord and fellow young adults.
Join retreat director Father Peter Huynh, L.C., as he explores the meaning of the new evangelization and how to live it through our daily actions. This overnight, 24-hour retreat includes inspiring talks, faith-sharing discussions, the way of the cross, candlelight procession, exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, benediction, confession, meditation, personal reflection, Mass, fellowship activities and more.
Retreatants will also receive a copy of the book “Rebuilt: The Story of a Catholic Parish,” which shares how a suburban Baltimore parish community was revived through focus on the new evangelization efforts. This easy read provides advice on how we can all become better disciples of Jesus, and relates to this year’s young adult retreat theme.
Additionally, Catholic artist Will Panagokos will perform music for the Mass and part of Holy Hour at the retreat. The Franciscan University graduate and missionary for Generation Life has been speaking and playing music with the hope of igniting in the hearts of others a renewal of faith, hope and love.
For more information or to register, visit the Malvern Retreat House website or call 610-644-0400.
The cost for the retreat is $100 per person with a $40 deposit. The remaining balance is due by check-in on May 30. The price includes all meals and a private room.
Malvern Retreat House is located at 315 South Warren Avenue in Malvern.
