Las Posadas is over a 400 year-old tradition that commemorates Mary and Joseph’s journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem and their search for a place to stay. (Posadas is Spanish for “lodgings” or “accommodations.”) It “commemorates the nine months of Mary’s pregnancy. Each night, one family agrees to house the pilgrams.” The tradition continues each evening with a different house as the chosen Posadas. Las Posadas begins on December 16th from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at the Parish Hall. Check the parish calendar for the location of each night of the other nights. The last night of Las Posadas is December 23rd.
