Letter: Community Christmas Posada in Pescadero, Saturday


By on Wed, December 10, 2008

I hope that you’ll join us for a community Christmas Posada on December 13, 2008.

Traditionally, the Posadas enact the journey of Joseph and Mary, remembering them as they went door to door in search of lodging and safe haven. Their journey reminds us of countless other pilgrims that sought safety over the generations and those that refused them shelter. This powerful narrative takes different forms in every faith tradition as we are reminded that each of us holds the responsibility to bring light to others, even in the darkest times.

I hope that you will join with Puente and our beloved community as we walk through Pescadero asking for safe harbor for the world’s many pilgrims. The procession will be followed by a potluck, singing, games, and of course, piñatas for the children.

6:00 PM The pilgrimage departs from St. Anthony’s Church (696 North Street, Pescadero) and continues to Pescadero Community Church (363 Stage Road)

A community gathering and potluck at the Pescadero Community Church will follow the procession (note this is a new location) will follow the procession at 350 Butano Cut-Off, Pescadero.  There will be piñatas, music, raffles, Christmas songs, and more.

For more information, call Belinda Arriaga or Maria Molina at 650.879.1691

Wishing you and yours a safe journey,

Kerry Lobel
