La Oficina del Ministerio Multicultural organizó un retiro-taller para todos los que están por celebrar sus quince años. Participaron jóvenes de diferentes parroquias. Se les pidió que escribieran lo que significa esta celebración. Estos fueron los pensamientos y sentimientos que manifestaron:

Sebastían Mata: “A Quinceañero is a time to thank God for your life that you spend with your family. It involves Mass; it can show how much you care for your religion.”
María Lozano: “To me, a Quinceañera means to thank God for your 15 years of life. Also, it means the transformation from being a girl to becoming a woman. A Quinceañera is a very special day in a girl’s life. Throughout the whole day God should be in your mind, no matter what you are doing.”

Britney Villaseñor: “A Quinceañera for me is a day when I get closer to God and with my family. It’s a celebration of when you turn from a girl into a young woman. You’re also celebrating the day you turn 15.”

Vanessa Moreno: “Quinceañera to me is a party. A time to thank God for another day he gave me, a time to spend with my family and friends. It is a celebration of a girl’s 15th birthday and transition from childhood to adulthood.”

Angela Cruz: “A (Quinceañera) is a celebration of a young girl’s birthday. Also, it is when a young lady turns into a young woman and takes responsibility like helping out at the house. A (Quinceañera) is a day of your life that you won’t forget.”

Ayleen Prada: “A Quiceañera is a celebration of when you turn into a ‘woman.’ It’s mainly celebrated in the Hispanic culture. You celebrate it at age 15.”

Mireya López: “A Quinceañera means a celebration of when a girl turns 15. It symbolizes growing up. It involves having a Mass and then throwing a party and getting to spend time with your family.”

Tania Melendez: “Para mí la Quinceañera es un día para darle gracias a Dios por dejarme vivir mis primeros 15 años de vida. Es una celebración del paso de niña a mujer.”

Kate Martinez: “Celebrated in Latin parts of America (Quinceañera) represents a young girl turning into a young woman, brought together by friends and family.”

Gloria Aguilar: “A Quinceañera is a big celebration of a girl finally turning into a young lady. For me, it means God, party and friends.”

Valeria Ramos: “Quinceañera means to me that the time has finally come that I have to grow up and turn into a young lady. Fifteen years means that God has allowed me to live for 15 years and my parents are able to give me a big celebration.”

Angie Meraz: “Una Quinceañera es una tradición mexicana. Es la forma de decir gracias a Dios por 15 años de vida. Es cuando un niño o una niña se convierten en hombre o mujer. Festejos con familiares y amigos… un día muy especial.”

Carmen Ledezma: “A Quinceañera is when you become closer to God and closer to your family, when you become a woman/man and accept big responsibilities set to help you through life.”
Sanjuanita Cruz: “A Quinceañera is when you become a lady. It’s a celebration of a girl’s 15th birthday and her transition from childhood to adulthood, typically involving a Mass followed by a party.”
A todos y todas que se preparan para celebrar sus Quinceaños, les deseamos bendiciones en ese día tan especial. Que nunca permitan que Dios se aleje de sus vidas.
