1. About Dallas Lay Dominican Formation

1.3. Candidate Formation

After the new candidate receives his Dominican pin, he is officially welcomed as a member of the Dominican Order and begins his one year formal formation period. This is a more formal formation period in the life of a fraternity member. This period includes diverse activities: the study of the life of St. Dominic and other great Dominican figures, such as St. Catherine of Siena; the study of the Constitutions, the history of the Order, and the Rule of the Fraternities of St. Dominic; and the general practice of the commitments of a lay Dominican (e.g., daily Mass, Morning and Evening Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours, daily Rosary).
