A rite is an established, ceremonious, usually religious act. Rites in this sense fall into three major categories:
- rites of passage, generally changing an individual's social status, such as marriage, baptism, or graduation.
- rites of worship, where a community comes together to worship, such as Jewish synagogue or Mass
- rites of personal devotion, where an individual worships, including prayer and pilgrimages such as the Muslim Hajj.
