The Pastoral Juvenil will celebrate its Annual Posada Juvenil on December 16, 2023.
Posada means “lodging” or “inn” and is a celebration honoring the birth of baby
Jesus. It was created by the first missionaries in America, as a re-telling of the
story of how Mary and Joseph were looking for a place to stay in the days
leading up to the birth of Jesus.
Our Posada has various beautiful moments. We begin our posada by praying the
rosary, and then we go door to door singing the Posada, recalling how Mary and
Joseph were looking for a place to stay. After this, we will share traditional and
There are some other highlight moments like the Pastorela, which represents the
appearance of the angels to the shepherds and the difficulties they faced in
reaching the manger to worship the newborn. Also, another beautiful moment is
the breaking of the piñata. The posada’s piñata is in the shape of seven-pointed
stars that represent the seven capital sins. The breaking of the piñata and the
candies that come pouring out, represent all the gifts that Jesus brings us with
his birth, including himself, our greatest gift.
Young adults are invited to attend. We will be so happy to have you enjoying this
beautiful meaningful tradition. You can find more details in the attached flyer.
