RITE 13 meets Sunday at 5:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall for a meal and activity.
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.
When the youth arrived for their first meeting they discovered they were in charge of making supper! Teamwork and following a recipe was their first lesson. Yummy Tacos.
