HAPPY ANNIVERSARY .
Forty years ogo this summer began the wonderiul “Romance
of Malvern." True, Mnlvern did not come into the picture until’
eight years later, but its beginnings do hm: this your A fortielll
on August 29, 1913, Mr. John Ferreck with his friend, our esteemed
venernble League rresident, John J. Sullivan, Eso. brought to Saint charles
seminary a small group or men. There at Overbrook, took place the first
retreat of what was to become the laymen’: Week-end Retreat League of
Philadelphia or, as we anectionately know it, "the Men of Malvern." A
second retreat was held the following Week-end, The total for that first
year was 150 retrcutunts. rsther.Terrence shsuly, sJ.,' Retreut Muster or
lllount Manresa, Sheen Island, conducted the two retreats held annually at
Overbl-oak from 1913 to 1921. A total of eighteen retreats was given during
this period and the attendance had grown frolri 150 i.n19l3 to 450 in 1921.

in 1520 the late Cardinal Dougherty, Archbishop oirhiludelphia, ad-
dressed the retreatants and expressed the hope.tl-lat the zluovernent would
soon procure a permanent retreat house. In 1921 our present Malvern was
discovered. On May 21 of the following year it was dedicated as Saint
Joseph’:-irlrthe-Hills by Cardinal Daugherty. The tirst retreat begun on
June 2. 1922. ‘ , . ’ 1
few siutiuiics cell the story or the‘ Retreat Movement’:
physical growth. From the two nnnusl retreutsoi 1913, the present
program provides no retreats per year‘-two each weekend. The
original 51 acres or the Cox estate has been increased to its present
150 acres. The‘ three original buildings now ore ooinpsnioned by
four additional structures-the lniest almost completed, is really
three buildings In one: grand total of nine. The 150 retreatantn
or 1913 are certninly overshadowed by rhe 12,200 who mule retreuts
at Malv-rrn in 1952. . v
I have not readily available the sum total or all retreats made to date.
That is less important, however, than the contribution these thousands of
retre ts have made to the Glory of God and to the spiritual welfare of the
Men of Malveru and others. Only God Himself tan how and appraise this
contribution. - .
God Blesuea Mnlvern .
ad has blessed us during the past forty years. May He continue to
it with Christ-like Retreat Masters and zealous, self-uscrincnig lay leader-
ship. May we in some srnnll way merit Eis continued Providence.
> We who are now privileged to be the present-day Men of lilulvern
have reason to rejoice on this our fortieth anniversary. We have greater
reason to thank God for the heritage that is ours and to show appreciation
tor the contribution or the noble Priests and Men of Mulveru who have
preceded us. . . . .
on some future nnniversury day may the then Men of lilalvcrn
look buck upon our humble cirorts und ihinlr kindly of the way ihnt
we have liepl alive the glorious traditions of Saint .lossph's.in.thc-
Hills. May ihry wirh genuine nppreciation behold the heritage that
is now ours-further enhanced and more deeply enriched by us
who today glory in the title: “Men or nalvern." < , ‘
on August 29 1 shall oirer in your name a Holy Mass for lilalvorn.
will you join me in your own way in the dischurge of this debt of gratitude
to Him without Whom we ure nothing?
Again, Happy Anniversary,‘ my Men or Malvern.
