DAVL – Detroit Archdiocese Vocations League


To organize common fundraising activities for the Knights of Columbus Councils and Assemblies in the Detroit Archdiocese in support of Vocations.

Who we are

The Detroit Archdiocesan Vocations League or DAVL began in 1982. Membership is voluntary, there are no dues. Our common interest in supporting Vocations binds us together. Through our combined fundraiser events the DAVL has given back to the participating K of C Councils an average of $15,000 a year.

What we do

There are four major events held every year.

  • DAVL Dinner, held in the Spring
  • Raffle, held in late spring to early summer
  • Golf Outing, held in September
  • Memorial Mass and Breakfast, held in November

Councils who participate earn points for levels of participation and the money raised is given back to the Knights of Columbus Councils proportionately with the expectation to be used to support a seminarian or postulant through the RSVP program.

We need YOU!

The cost of an education can be quite high and our seminarians and postulants need our help. The RSVP program helps the seminarians and postulants directly with no restrictions on spending the money donated. Past seminarians have told us the money came in handy for: dental work, car repairs, clothing, daily expenses among other things.

By joining and becoming active in the DAVL you can help us grow both in membership and our fundraising efforts and as a result more seminarians and postulants can be helped.
