Faith Vocation and Leadership House

Living in a Faith, Vocation, and Leadership House is an experience for students interested in exploring faith, vocation, and leadership with the support of a community. In the student neighborhood, there is the FVL Legacy House for 7 people on College Park and FVL Special Interest Houses with varying group sizes. Students interested in living in an FVL House must be committed to building and being an intentional Christian community in the Student Neighborhood with guidance and support from a staff member/mentor from the Office for Christian Leadership and Vocation in Campus Ministry. 

Mission Statement

As members of the Faith, Vocation, and Leadership House, we seek to live intentionally in community through prayer, hospitality, and Christian servant-leadership.  Grounded in and formed by the Catholic and Marianist traditions, we strive to be an inviting community, challenging ourselves, UD students, and others to grow in faith, intentionally exploring vocation, and living in a way consistent with our faith traditions through active discernment of God’s will.
