Become a certified Catholic Quince Prep Leader!

This training is offered to parish and diocesan leaders who would like to facilitate the Quinceañeras Preparation at their own parish or diocese as a 2-Day retreat.
 


Who 

- Parish or diocesan leaders: Deacons, Youth Ministers, volunteers, etc. Need to be referred by the parish or diocese.

- Minimum age: 18 years old.

- Catholics in good standing with the church, especially regarding the importance of sacraments and Christian virtues: chastity, purity, and pro-life

- No experience is required.

- Trainees need to be proficient in English since this training is only available in English at the moment. They should also have appropriate computer skills.

- At the end of the training, participants will be asked to read and fill out our Agreement.


How

- This training is to be completed entirely online within 3 months.

- Trainees will be assigned to work with a certified and experience female mentor.

- Trainees will complete the same course teens will complete. The purpose of this approach is to “get the leader in the teen’s shoes” so they can experience what the teens will and develop an awareness sense of the teens’ needs.

- Female mentors review trainees’ work and provide an Answer Key for every assignment completed.

- Answer Keys offer a complete revision of the topics covered in it as well as some valuable teaching tips and advice as part as the training. Answer Keys are rooted in the teachings of the Catholic Church, the Theology of the Body (for teens) of St. John Paul II, and the CCC (Catechism).

- Upon completion of training, leaders will receive a Quince Prep Leader Certification and a set of instruction materials.

- This preparation is designed to be delivered in a 2-Day Retreat at parishes, separated by a week (example: 2 Saturdays).

- This is what the 2-Day Retreat will look like:

  • Day 1: 3 hours in the morning; 3 hours in the afternoon
  • Day 2: 3 hours in the morning; 2 hours in the afternoon followed by Confessions, Mass, and Chastity Ring Ceremony (if possible).
