Quinceañera Planning

 

We are excited that you have chosen to plan your Quinceañera here at St. Henry! This site will help guide you through the process. Below is a list of pages that may assist you. If you have any questions, please contact the parish office at 218-346-4240.

 

Even though Quinceañeras are not technically a sacrament, it is still a significant cultural ritual. The event should be treated with the same respect and preparation that would be expected for the sacraments. Our whole faith community should support every young lady who approaches her Quinceañera to renew her baptismal promises, receive communion, and make an act of consecration to the Virgin Mary. It is a great act of faith to honor herself and her religion.

Quinceañera Prayer

Heavenly Father, I thank you for the gift of life, for creating me in your image and likeness, and for calling me to be your daughter through Baptism. Thank you for sending your Son Jesus to save me and your Holy Spirit to sanctify me. To that which in your goodness and love you will for me, I say “yes,” with your grace I commit myself to serve my brothers and sisters all my life. Mary, Mother of Jesus and our Mother, I dedicate myself to you. Since you are my model of faith, help me to continue learning from you what I need to be a Christian woman. Help me to hear the Word of God as you did, holding it in my heart and loving others, so that, as I walk with Jesus in this life, I may worship him with you in all eternity. Amen.
