IT'S POSADA TIME AGAIN!
Will you welcome
Mary and Joseph into your home as they travel towards
What is a POSADA ? It is a figure of Our Lady and St.Joseph
with the donkey, making their way towards
Many people like myself had never heard of the Posada until Advent last year, when the diocese sent out a posada figure to all of the parishes, and encouraged us to adopt the custom. This was done with the New Evangelization in mind, in which we are encouraged to reach out to the lapsed and to the unconverted. It was felt that whereas we might be a little shy of asking them to come to Church with us, we might be less shy about inviting one or two people into our home for what is a part-social part-religious occasion at a time of the year when hearts and minds tend to be open.
I'm hoping to bless the Posada at the end of the 9.30am Mass next Sunday, and then it will begin its journey around the parish. If you would like the Posada to come to your home, please sign the rota at the back of church.
