Las Posadas

December 16 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Posadas (Spanish for inn, lodging, or shelter) are an Advent candlelight procession and celebration.

In Mexico and some parts of Central America, Colombia, Venezuela, and Ecuador, it is traditional to hold the Posadas during the nine days before Christmas, beginning December 16 and ending December 24.

The Posadas are a reenactment of 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 the Posadas that by welcoming the poor and the needy, we are welcoming Jesus into our midst. (See Matthew 25:40.)

Join us for this celebration!
