The word comes from “Las Posadas’ – the Spanish for ‘Inns”. It is a religious festival which originates in Mexico and parts of the United States and is celebrated between 16th -24th December . Las Posadas commemorates the journey that Joseph and Mary made from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of a safe refuge where Mary could give birth to baby Jesus.
A little Mary and Joseph will travel house to house around the parish en route to Bethlehem. If you would like the to call at your house please sign up on the sheet at he back of church.
