Quinceanera/Sweet Sixteen

The Quinceañera/Sweet 16 is the celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday, marking her passage from childhood to womanhood. The Quinceañera Mass is an act of Thanksgiving for Life and Faith, crowned by God’s blessing. It is an opportunity for a young girl to consolidate her commitment to her faith.

St. Symphorosa offers Quinceañera/Sweet 16 Masses or Ceremonies to registered parish families. They are scheduled on Saturdays at 1:00pm or 3:00 pm. The young lady looking to celebrate her fifteenth/sixteenth birthday in the church community with either a mass or ceremony must be a fully initiated Catholic. This means she has been baptized and received her First Holy Communion and Confirmation

A rehearsal is scheduled for all persons participating in the celebration the week of the Quinceañera or Sweet 16.

For more information or if you have any questions please contact Maggie Barry at the Parish office at (773) 767-1523 ext. 221 or via email at symphorosa@comcast.net.
