The Manual, Constitution & Rite of Admission

The Manual of the Sodality, like the rest of our common life, is a work in progress. Much work was done in the formation year and this ‘final’ version will now be lived by the first members as we discern its helpfulness in our lives.

The Manual is designed to be read, a section each day, over a calendar month. This could be added to the Office of Readings, Compline or used as preparation for Mass.
