The enduring legacy of Kappa Alpha Theta's ritual is one of the most meaningful aspects of our Fraternity. Beyond the ceremonies and services, ritual serves as a moral guide to help Thetas fulfill the principles and ideals of our treasured sisterhood. Thetas all over the world are bound together by the steadfast permanence of Theta's ritual, and these words offer a source of strength, peace, and wisdom for many Thetas. As we approach Theta's 150th anniversary in 2020, the critical role of ritual throughout Theta's history is of even more importance.
March 5-11, Kappa Alpha Theta will again participate in Ritual Celebration Week and NPC's International Badge Day on Monday, March 6.
There are several ways you can participate!
