Canadian OCDS Manual Of Formation
Second Edition


A second edition of the manual is now available in a spiral-bound format. First published in 2004, the manual provides a comprehensive guide to formation through the first six years of the OCDS vocation. The OCDS Constitutions form the foundation and heart of the teachings found in this Manual.

This work is a collaboration of over forty OCDS members under the guidance of our Provincial Delegate, Fr. Dominic Borg, OCD. It is required reading for all Aspirants and Candidates in formation in English-Speaking Canada.
