Upcoming Events

12/17 – Sunday night.  Parish Posada / Posada Parroquial.  6:00pm in St. Angela Hall.  Posadas are an important part of Mexican Christmas traditions. These community celebrations take place on each of the nine nights leading up to Christmas. The nine nights represent the nine months of pregnancy. The word posada means “inn” or “shelter” in Spanish, and in this tradition, Mary and Joseph’s voyage to Bethlehem and their search for a place to stay is re-enacted.  Procession, Food, Dancing, Fiesta and more!
¡Procesión, Comida, Baile, Fiesta y más!   Nuestra comunidad toma lugar durante nueve noches antes de Navidad. Las nueve noches representas los nueve meses de embarazo de María.
