Lasallians will re-enact Mary and Joseph's journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem during the school’s second annual posada celebration at 6 pm on Friday, Dec. 14, at the school.
Posadas are celebrated in many Latin American countries in the weeks leading up to Christmas.
“It’s a good way to build community by learning about what different Catholic traditions look like around the world,” said Maritza Mendez, who is coordinating the event with several La Salle parents and school registrar Liz Staggs.
La Salle's festivities will start with a procession simulating Mary and Joseph’s attempts to find shelter at a posada, which means "inn" or "lodging" in Spanish. Participants portraying the couple will walk down the school hallways, asking "innkeepers" for a place to stay. Those portraying the innkeepers will reply in song. Eventually, the couple will be welcomed, kicking off the start of the potluck, music, and piñata party.
Everyone in the La Salle community is invited to attend the posada. RSVP with Ms. Mendez or sign up here.
