Great Hall

All are invited to join us for the Ninth Annual Las Posada. The celebration begins at 6 p.m. in the Great Hall. Our travelers will move from ‘house’ to ‘house’ for Las Posada and then in the Sanctuary for prayer and worship of the Blessed Sacrament (XLT). The evening concludes in the Great Hall with a simple meal, Piñata and candies.

What is Posada?

The traditional Latin celebration called Posada is an Advent retelling of the journey of Joseph and Mary seeking shelter in la posada, or inn, prior to the birth of Jesus. Joseph, Mary, and a guardian angel lead the re-enactment. The group travels in procession to three pre-arranged “houses”. At each house Mary and Joseph, ask for shelter through a song. Some of the participants sing along with them, asking the household for lodging. Others play the role of an innkeeper who reject the seekers. At the third house, the household recognizes Mary and Joseph and welcomes them.

What is XLT?

Exalt (XLT) is a powerful encounter with Jesus Christ that will help you grow in your faith. It incorporates praise and worship music led by Viva Cristo Rey praise and worship band, a simple teaching and Eucharistic Adoration.

What do I need to bring?

Your entire family! You may also bring side dishes for the meal, musical instruments such as tambourines, or maracas, your rosary and wear comfortable, warm clothes.
