PRESENTACIONES

Presentation of Jesus in the Temple

La Presentación is a tradition when we thank God for the life of your new child and ask for God’s continued blessings. Your child is presented to God at the Church usually at 40 days old or three years old. The ritual is in honor of the presentation by Mary and Joseph of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Temple, 40 days after Christmas (Luke 2:22-35) and the presentation by Ann and Joachim of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Temple at 3 years of age.

The priest or deacon blesses your child as we celebrate God’s gift of life.  La Presentación is a special and sacred way for your family to begin to walk with God towards the sacrament of Baptism for your child.

Please speak with Father Smuda about the requirements.
