CARA Study Guide

Folder CARA Study

In spring 2015 the North American Conference of Associates and Religious (NACAR) commissioned the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA) to update and extend a study CARA conducted in 2000 of the associate relationship in religious institutes in the United States and Canada (the year 2000 report is still available for purchase here). The project was designed by CARA in collaboration with NACAR and consisted of a survey for leadership of associates in religious institutes and a survey of the associates and vowed members of those institutes.

This study guide is for associate groups and/or leadership, congregational leadership teams, and groups of religious and/or associates, who want to reflect more deeply together on the findings of the CARA study. Reflecting on the study in relation to personal experience of the associate-religious relationship will be especially valuable. The questions for each topic are meant to provide a springboard for personal and communal reflection and responsive action from what has been gleaned from the study.

You may download either a version that is single pages or in booklet format that can be printed back to back and folded into an 8½ by 5½ booklet.
