La Posada

December 16 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Come enjoy a bilingual posada with the congregation of Iglesia Santa Cruz/Holy Cross.

Las Posadas (Spanish for inn, lodging, or shelter) are an Advent candlelight procession and celebration re-enacting Mary and Joseph’s long, frustrating search for a place where Jesus could be born. The tradition reenacts the story told in Luke 2:1 – 7 but with a twist: a happy ending with the “innkeeper” welcoming Mary and Joseph into the home.

We learn from las Posadas that by welcoming the poor and the needy, we are welcoming Jesus into our midst. (See Matthew 25:40.)
