OTHER EVENTS

Houses will occasionally host speakers to come and talk about discernment, vocation, and spirituality. 

Fort Wayne is a vibrant, Catholic community with a number of parishes. Don't hesitate to get involved in parish life. 

Each resident has their own private bedroom, and full use of common areas including kitchen, lounge, prayer space, yard, and laundry.

We ask residents to contribute their fair share of expenses. This may be done by one of the following: 

  1. Pay $360 monthly 
     

  2. Volunteer 10 hours per week for the CFP
     

  3. Volunteer whatever hours you are able, and pay the remaining expense monthly

 

Volunteer tasks generally include computer and administrative work, but may also be catered to residents' talents and abilities. 

In addition to rent or volunteer hours, we ask residents to contribute $10 a month for common meals and household staples (toilet paper, cleaning supplies, etc.).

Upon acceptance into the vocation house, the initial security deposit is $300. When your room is vacated, the security deposit will be refunded in full or part depending on the condition of your room.

If you're interested in staying, but would like to experience life in a vocation house on a briefer basis first, a visit may be arranged. See our contact page to get in touch.
