Posada Celebration and blessing of the ‘moving’ crib – Friday 16th December, 7.30pm
Dear friends, on Friday 16th at 7:30pm, we will be celebrating a beautiful Mexican tradition of following the footsteps of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem called the Posada. This celebration re-enacts the journey of Mary and Joseph, their rejection at some doors and finally finding a place to welcome the child Jesus into the world. The journey will take us outside the Church initially and finish in St Francis Hall with a warm drink, some food and the singing of Christmas Carols together. This is something that children will enjoy and there will be a Pinata for the children to open also. I hope you can join us on the 16th. Please bring food and drinks to share.
That same evening, we will be unveiling and blessing the “moving crib” that Br Olivier has made.
