247

Posada is the Spanish word for “to take shelter” or “ to take in.” Catholics throughout Latin America celebrate a novena before Christmas of meditations and feasts inviting participants to give shelter to the newborn King in their lives. The Hispanic communities are pleased to invite the entire community to take the Christ child in our hearts in inspiring Posada celebrations. Don’t be surprised if Joseph and Mary show up seeking posada. Delicious tamales and piping hot atole drink will be served. All are welcome. Todos son bienvenidos.
