College and Young Adult Programs
Ask a DAVA member to come to your campus! DAVA members regularly serve as spirtual companions at Busy Person Retreats. They are also able to meet with discernment groups, give retreats, and be present to get to know students.
Dubuque's Got Sisters
Are you interested in checking out religious life? You are invited to quiet, to prayer and to learn how you might experience God’s call within you. Join us for a day, or two, of input and reflection. Check our events page for the next Dubuque's Got Sisters event.
Young Adult Events
DAVA members can be a resource for vocation education or a companion for vocation discernment. Ask a DAVA member to come to your event or be a companion on the journey.
