Journey into Christmas

The Latino parishioners from St. Francis church in Rochester, Minnesota led us in the celebration of the Las Posadas.

Mary and Joseph and their supporters are locked inside Lourdes Chapel at Assisi Heights.

Mary and Joseph are gathered with the people, knocking at the door.  They need to get out and find a place for the child to be born.

Outside the Chapel we are singing back and forth until—miracle of miracles, the doors are opened wide and all of the people join together to find a good place for Christ to be born.

Father Jose, pastor of St. Francis Parish, cheers the people on as they prepare to welcome the holy Child.

May Christmas live forever in your hearts, and children continue to enter our country without roadblocks in their path.
