RITE 13 meets Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. in the Education Building, second floor.

The Rite 13 class is an integral part of the Journey to Adulthood program. The Rite 13 curriculum assists young people as they take the first steps of passage away from their families and into their own lives. The liturgical centerpiece of this group is the Rite 13 ceremony, which celebrates the passage from childhood to manhood and womanhood. During these two years, the community acknowledges the gift of gender, celebrates the amazing creative power and potential for these young people, and creates a safe haven to explore new ideas, new interests, and new abilities.

The Rite-13 youth used the Book of
Common Prayer to look at example
prayers. They wrote their own
prayers for when facing a big event, for
when life gets difficult, and for the
evening time after the day is done.
The kids wrote beautiful prayers!
