Dear Quinceañera and Parents,

The Virgin Mary is a model for women of every class and age group. The quinceañera ritual is valuable for the religious message it sends not only to young people celebrating their 15th birthday, but also to parents, grandparents, godparents and the entire parish in calling us to prayerfully join with youth in making a commitment to God and the Church.

Celebrating your quinceañera is a wonderful event for you, your family, friends, and the Church. It is a special day to celebrate what God has accomplished in you over the last 15 years. The world was blessed when God created you. The Church was blessed when your parents presented you for Baptism. Our Parish is blessed as you present yourself to God on the day of your quinceañera.

We, as the family of God, congratulate you. We are committed to make that day memorable. To help with this, please read our guidelines carefully, so that you may prepare for your celebration in a meaningful way. We pray that this day will be a blessing for you. We highly recommend that all the Catholic members of the court should receive Communion on that day.
