Religion has always played a key role in the quinceañera celebration--- the girl is growing in her faith and taking a larger role in both her religious community, as well as her social community. For this purpose we celebrate a Thanksgiving mass in which the girl expresses her gratitude to her family and friends for their love and support. The girl is also presented to the community as a new adult member. 

While the basic mass doesn’t change, there are some additional elements. The court of honor and the quinceañera enter in a processional. Girls can have a short coronation ceremony, with the quinceañera’s mother or godmother placing a tiara on her. Some enter the church carrying their “Last Doll,” a gift meant to symbolize leaving childhood, which they exchange for a bouquet of flowers before taking their seat of honor for the mass.



Crown: the Crown of Life (promised in scripture to all who believe in Christ)
Birthstone Ring: the tie of commitment to Christ
Flowers: representing life (usually friends, family, or attendants, will give the 15 flowers total, which are then left at a statue of the Virgin Mary)
Necklace or medal = image of a patron saint (one you are named after) or other saint that is special to the girl and/or her family
Bible = the Word of God (guide for life)
