St. Joseph Catholic Church is sponsoring Posadas during the month of December. It’s an eight-day bilingual event in both English and Spanish. All of the community is invited to attend.
Posadas commemorates the journey Joseph and Mary from Nazareth made to Bethlehem to find safe refuge for Mary to give birth to the baby Jesus.
The celebration of Posadas is regularly celebrated in Mexico and in many parts of the United States. This spiritual event is a beautiful reminder of the meaning of Christmas and the joy that can be found when a community celebrates together.
The event will take place nightly at 6:30 p.m. from Dec 16-23 in the church.
They will be praying the rosary and singing Christmas carols. Afterwards, refreshments will be served, and there will be candy for the children.
This is a great way for the entire family to prepare for Christmas and to celebrate the birthday of Jesus. Each night is being sponsored by a different group in the parish.
St. Joseph Catholic Church is located at 1621 Center Avenue in Los Banos. To learn more about this activity, contact the parish office at (209) 826-4246.
