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, 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
years. The world was blessed when God created you. The Church was blessed when your
parents presented you for Baptism. Our parish of Holy Name 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.

General Information

Parents may request a quinceañera for their child by calling our parish office. Our pastor will
preside for all quinceañeras in which the family and the young person are active in our parish.
For those who come from a different parish, you can have your quinceañera here, but you have
to have permission from you regular attended parish.

The Quinceañera candidate must have received the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, and
Communion before the ceremony is celebrated. The candidate is to have received the
Sacrament of Confirmation or be in the process of receiving this sacrament.

For more information please contact the office.
