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.
Parents may request a quinceañera for their daughter by calling our parish office: 708-895-6700 Ext: 135
The quinceañera candidate must have received the sacraments of Baptism and First Communion before the quinceañera is celebrated. The candidate is to have received the Sacrament of Confirmation or be in the process of receiving this sacrament.
We do not celebrate quinceañeras on Sundays, Christmas, Lenten season, Holy Week, Easter or other holy days. Please see Registration form for more details.
