Advent / Christmas Celebration
Sunday, December 8th, Starting at 3:30PM
- St. Nicholas Visit
- La Posada
- Parish Family Posada Pot Luck Dinner
Our Advent Celebration includes three Enriching Programs in one, with something for every parishioner.
- St. Nicholas Christmas Visit: from 3:30PM to 5:00PM
Starts off the afternoon for Parents / Grandparents and children from preschool to 5th graders. They will enjoy a personal visit with St. Nicholas along with a special craft exercise to create a memorable Christmas gift for someone special. St Nicholas will also talk to each child, pose for photos, and share special stories of Christmas along with the lesson that “it is always more blessed to give than to receive.”
The tradition of placing little gifts in the children’s shoes will be observed, so be sure your children wear socks!
- La Posada: 5:00PM to 6:00PM.
This is a traditional candlelit procession reenacting the entrance of Mary and Joseph into Bethlehem on the Eve of our Lord's birth. As a Parish Family, we will walk, sing, and recite prayers together as we process to the New Grotto, remembering that most blessed night. This will be an event you will not want to miss!!!
- Parish Family Posada Pot Luck Parish Dinner (6:00PM to 7:30PM)
This dining event tops off our Celebration. The only price for admission is that you bring your favorite Family or Latino dish / dishes to the event to share with others in this Latin Pot Luck Feast.
