If you are joining the Nashville Dominicans...
From The Theoscope: A Search for a Vocation, among other things...:
"Yesterday someone asked what items we must bring with us. Again, it's not a long list (and this one is not that complete) but here are a few of the more interesting things:
Rosary (duh, we're the Dominicans :)
Bible, Catechism, favorite prayer books
Vatican Documents (volumes I & II)
Shoe polish (we already discussed that)
8 Aprons (we already discussed this too)
2 Tupperware containers (to hold our in-progress habits)
Sewing supplies (to make in-progress habits)
A Bookbag (most, if not all of us, are going back to school!)
Musical instrument (if we play one--we are under the patronage of St. Cecilia, after all!)"
