Event description

Description

This holiday season, stand in solidarity with migrants by joining us for a posadas procession in Downtown D.C.!

Las Posadas Navideñas is a nine-day religious observance meant to honor Mary and Joseph’s quest for shelter. Every night from Dec. 16-24, neighbors gather to recreate the Holy Family’s experience. They dress up, sing, pray and celebrate the coming anniversary of the Savior’s birth. Immigrants in search of refuge, much like the Holy Family, brought this 400-year-old Latin American tradition to their new countries.

The Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. invites you to celebrate this tradition to honor those immigrants, their journey and their fortitude.

We will be meeting at St. Joseph’s Parish on Capitol Hill at 3:30pm and walking to St. Peter’s Parish. The procession will be followed by a small reception at St. Peter’s featuring music, food and fun.

Learn more about this event at cliniclegal.org/posadas. We look forward to seeing you there!
