Posada Mary and Joseph figures

Bookmark and Share
Posada is a Spanish word that means 'inn', and is also the title for a Mexican Advent celebration in which two young people dressed as Mary and Joseph travelled from house to house in their village to proclaim the imminent arrival of Jesus and request that the newborn baby be given a room.

The idea has been updated so that nativity figures travel round the parish from staying at a different house every night, and finally taking their place in the church crib.

Mary and Joseph's journey through the parish reminds us that we need to make room for Jesus in our lives, homes and communities
