XV - Quinceañera/Sweet Sixteen

The celebration of a daughters fifteenth birthday is a very important time within the Hispanic population, that has been kept alive for many years here in the United States. We at St. Leonard's Church wish to help in keeping with the understanding and importanct of this tradition. We ask that anyone planning thier celebration contact our office six monts prior. Our goal in our formation program is to understand:

Background and meaning of the "Quince Anos"

Self-Knowledge "Who am I"

Who is Jesus?

Womens roles in our society

My youth and values.
