Quince Años (English) (Pastoral Center)

Saturday, November 15, 2014 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Location(s): 2nd. floor conference room



Quince Años. Course #710.  The celebration of the Quince Años is an act of thanksgiving to God for the gift of life. It complements the Sacraments bringing awareness to the young person of the promises made by their parents, in their name, during their baptism. This is a special blessing for young Catholic women (and men), as she (he) enters adulthood, to prepare her (him) for her (his) new responsibilities. This celebration offers an extraordinary evangelizing and catechetical opportunity for the parish. The focus is on the positive contribution of women in society and their active participation in the life of the parish. At the time of the celebration of the blessing of the quinceañera, a young woman (man), standing before the altar, is publicly presented by her (his) family and friends in a gesture of thanksgiving.

At the end of this course, participants (adult facilitators) will be able to:

  • Describe ways to strengthen the youth’s relationship with God
  • Identify ways to empower students to live as disciples of Christ in today’s world
  • Explain the importance of preserving Christian values
  • Discuss their Catholic faith and the community to which they belong
  • Show ways in which young people can participate in the life and mission of their faith community
  • Explain ways in which students show love and respect for themselves 
  • Describe the importance of preserving the traditions of the Hispanic culture
