Celebration of Sixteen Years of Life

At Nuestra Señora and Church of the Advent, we regularly celebrate a young member’s fifteenth (“La Quinceañera) or sixteenth birthday with a special Eucharist followed by a family party. During the Eucharist, the young woman may present the Virgin Mary with a bouquet of roses. Here are some photographs of a recent Eucharist held in honor of one of our young women celebrating her sixteenth birthday. She honored a cherished family tradition by wearing a beautiful dress that had been handed down for several generations. Thanks to Tony Torres for the great photographs!
