The materials contained in this section include the Study Guides that are available for each of the modules presented during the first stage of formation, the Inquiry Stage. Each module is designed to provide basic information about the topic with opportunities to deepen one’s existing knowledge of the content provided.
Each Study Guide describes the purpose of the module and invites the participant into a form of Prayer/Contemplation before further preparation begins for the session. A reading assignment and questions to think about before attending the session is given for Study purposes. Suggestions about how the activities will strengthen the Community and Apostolate pillars of Dominican life are also provided.
Sufficient attention to this Study Guide will help the Inquirer feel more at home within the budding Dominican group and will help him/her derive the most benefit spiritually from the actual session.
