Alpha Delta Pi Ritual Workshop
Transcript of Alpha Delta Pi Ritual Workshop
the sign The effectiveness of Ritual's message is in direct proportion to your knowledge and belief in its values. If you not only understand but believe in the message of ritual, it will affect the way you live your life. And it will affect the chapter. It si the indifference to adn the ignorance of its essential message that continues to stifle the growth of the sorority system. The message, guidance, values, and leadership the have been so long hidden in the pages of ritual are exactly what we need as we prepare to leave college and start the rest of our lives. By Knowing and understanding Ritual, many of the day-to-day problems of your chapter would be solved We each signed and agreed to the Obligations of Alpha Delta Pi during Initiation. We are about to re-read these obligations. As we read them, think about the promise you made to this chapter and your sisters. All of the problems that happen could be resolved if we just lived up to the responsibility we signed to. Why is Ritual Important? Ritual is a system of values whose purpose is not to make you a better sorority woman, but rather a better human being. What does this mean for us? From the time we start off as Alphas, we are being prepared for our initiation oath (we just do not realize it). During Alpha Member Ceremony, we say and sign the pledge to uphold the ideals of Alpha Delta Pi. It is during initiation that we learn the secret Ritual of Alpha Delta Pi. But first we read the Objects of Alpha Delta Pi, what the purpose of the sorority is, and what the sorority expects to give to its members. Once we know the objects, we are prepared to learn the secret motto and we pledge ourselves to this motto by signing the Obligations of Alpha Delta Pi. The Obligations The final step for an Alpha member is to sign the Obligations of Alpha Delta Pi. By this time we each know what the sorority expects to give to us, and by signing we understand what we must give in return. When signing the Obligations we are each promising to live up to the expectations of our Ritual, which will in turn make us each not only a better sorority woman, but also a better human being. Whenever a member fails to uphold our standards and ideals--by revealing our secrets, violating our bylaws or standards code, or speaking ill of another member, just to name a few-- she should be asked to review her Obligations. And, whenever we hear or read the Obligations it is a call for each of us to rededicate ourselves to the ideals of Alpha Delta Pi.
