The quinceañera celebration is a special time for the family to publicly present the girl as a gesture of thanks for the gift of life and faith.

For the quinceañera, it is an opportunity to reaffirm her commitment to Christ.  It is also an occasion to give thanks to God for allowing her to reach this age and take on the adult responsibilities to her faith, family and community.  In light of this, the quinceanera and her family must meet the following objectives:
