Diocesan Posada - December 15, 2007

Las Posadas is a Mexican tradition that retells the Christmas story of Joseph and Mary's search for shelter.

From December 16 through Christmas eve, participants reenact the story by going to three designated locations or homes. They face continual rejection until at the last home they are welcomed. For many of those in our community who may be undocumented, this is symbolic of the rejection and fear in which they live.

On December 15, we will celebrate a diocesan-wide Posada focusing on the need for reform in our immigration system and safety in our communities. All are invited. We will gather at 6:30 pm at the Eastside Community Center, 2150 Alum Rock Avenue, San Jose. At the conclusion, we will celebrate with food and music.

Join us!
