 Among several Spanish-speaking countries and among many Hispanics in the United States there is the custom of celebrating the passage from childhood to adolescence with a ritual that expresses thanksgiving to God for the gift of life and that asks for a blessing from God for the years ahead. The Quinceañera, though not a sacrament is sacramental and therefore, can be celebrated in different forms depending on the family’s needs and its participation in the life of the parish.

Remember: the Act of Thanksgiving and the Blessing given are the key elements in the Quinceañera. The ceremony should be very memorable for those involved, especially the teen, family and close friends.

A family is considered active in the life of faith of the Church if:

  • regular attendance at Mass

  • regular attendance of religious education classes.

  •  family registered in the parish

  • the Quinceañera needs to be involved in the youth program

  • The Quinceañera must have ALL the following done before the date of the celebration:

  • the Quinceañera must have received the sacrament’s of Baptism and First Communion (a copy of the certificate must be submitted if not done at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church.

  • must receive the Rite of Reconciliation (confession)

If the Quinceañera is lacking in any of these requirements, there will be no celebration.
