All are invited to La Gran Posada on Sunday, December 16 immediately following the 5 pm Mass. This is a traditional Advent candlelight procession and celebration reenacting Mary and Joseph’s long, frustrating search for a place where Jesus could be born (Luke 2:1-7), but with a twist: a happy ending with the “innkeeper” welcoming Mary and Joseph. La Gran Posada teaches us that by welcoming the poor and the needy, we are welcoming Jesus into our midst. (See Matthew 25:40). There will be a reception in Henke Hall following La Gran Posada with food and piñatas for the children.
