Posada in Solidarity with Immigrants

  • Christ Church UCC 2200 Bellevue Ave Maplewood, MO, 63143 (map)

Please join us for a Posada in solidarity with immigrants! This is a local twist on the traditional reenactment of Mary and Joseph's pilgrimage in search of an inn where they hoped to find welcome and community. 

All are invited to meet at Christ Church UCC in Maplewood. Then, you are invited to join your choice of two groups: the marching group, who will walk about three-quarters of a mile back to the Church, to honor Central American immigrants en route to the US; or the inn-keepers, who will be waiting at Christ Church, eager to welcome them. Transportation will be provided for the marching group to the starting point; the pilgrimage will process back to/arrive at the Church for the posada ritual. Once together, we will enjoy tamales, atole and other delicious Mexican treats. 

May our joy be our resistance.
