This book aims to contribute to current debates over initiation rites in the context of the Catholic church. The amalgamation of traditional initiation rites and Catholic dogma has not been studied before by anthropologists. Initiation rites are presently performed by women's church groups, which are lay groups centered around a church. The specific ideas and practices related to these rites are the main subject of this book. An initiation rite performed by members of a women's church group located in an urban Roman Catholic community in Zambia, is described here in detail.
