The Quinceañera is part of a Mexican tradition that celebrates her gift of life and asks God’s blessing as she continues to grow in maturity and faith. The Church has had a role in offering blessings for Quinceañeras for hundreds of years and St. James also offers a blessing ceremony for young women who would like to celebrate it in the Church. Because of the limitations of time and space that we have on Saturdays, we are not able to offer the Quincinera with Mass. However, we offer the full Quincinera ceremony, minus the Communion.
