We are praying that at this very busy time of year, we might all find a little respite each day to experience the Presence of the One whom we are preparing to celebrate.  
  
Blessings and much love,

 Las Posadas

Las Posadas 1  

This Sunday at 6pm we will celebrate the tradition of Las Posadas at Emmanuel. This is the ancient tradition of re-enacting Mary and Joseph's search for a place for her to give birth. We  travel from door to door on the church campus, asking for entrance and greeted by 4 grumpy innkeepers before finally being welcomed at the fifth "inn"  by kindly innkeepers who invite us in for a feast of tamales and a pinata for the kids. The entire journey is done by candlelight while singing songs between inns. It is a delightful experience for young and old alike. Come join us!!
