Quinceneara Liturgy

    Our parish is having more and more Quincenearas, but the planning of them has shifted out of the parish, (another subject.)
    I asked one family what psalm was to be sung, and they said they hadn't been "told" yet.
    So, I tried a little research.
    I can find nothing "official" except for the blessing, but OCP has lectionary suggestions on their website (not in English.... grrrrr.)
    http://web.ocp.org/pdf/QuinceaneraSuggestions.pdf

    Does anyone know if these suggestions have any official standing, or even tradition, or if they are just something OCP thought sounded appropriate?

    All the OFFICIAL USCCB info is in the Second Post (above).
    This is a FYI POST, provided purely for the book afficionado,
    about a book from 1980.
    http://www.maccsa.org/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=maccsa&Product_Code=1250025&Category_Code=4
    This booklet is H8.5"xW5.5" with comb binding.
    It contains "Quince Anos Celebration I" and "Quince Anos Celebration II".
    The scripture citations are identical for both "I" and "II", but slightly differently ordered (reason unknown).
    The Responsorial Psalm options lack verse citations and refrain text (reason unknown).

    This is all unfamiliar to me, so I found the Wikipedia article on Quinceanera helpful.

    Back in Houston, many parishes had group celebrations, not individual. These always took place on Sundays, sometimes part of one of the regular Masses. In these cases, the Readings of the day prevailed.

    Thank you so much, very helpful, especially that PDF of the Blessing.
    I'm guessing then, that the OCP suggestions have no more wieght than their music suggestions.
