Parish Men’s Retreat Weekend June 26-28
Mark Your Calendars Now!
St. David Men of Malvern, each year we look forward to the Our Lady of Lourdes retreat at Malvern. Plan now on spending this special time with God in 2015. For over 100 years, the Malvern Retreat House has been providing opportunities for men, women and families to engage in a deep personal encounter with Jesus Christ. It is through this retreat experience that a person is refreshed and renewed to heed the gospel message. A retreat provides the necessary sacred space and time for God to transform us into living authentic discipleship.  Join the men of St. David Parish for the weekend of June 26th to 28nd for their Malvern retreat. To learn more, call Gary Warnalis at 215-260-5913 or send him an email at

Statues for Our Adoration Chapel
For some time I have been attempting to place statues of the Blessed Mother and St. Joseph in our Adoration Chapel. If any one is interested in donating money towards acquiring these statues, please contact Father Connors at the rectory. A dedication plaque will be placed on the statue(s) of those wishing it. The cost depends on what we receive in part or in whole. Thank you!

Donate and Save at the Same Time!
With each scrip gift card you purchase through School or Church, a percentage of the amount purchased is donated back to our School or our Church. Please check out information about hours and locations for scrip purchase above. I thank you, Father Connors.
