Los Posadas

An Advent Service in the Hispanic tradition that recalls Mary’s and Joseph’s search for shelter in Bethlehem. This year will be a Drive-Thru service. Worshipers follow the Holy Family as they visit several innkeepers looking, unsuccessfully, for shelter. They finally find room and are welcomed into a manger. It is an evening to remember!
