Los Posadas -- The Holy Family's quest for lodging in Bethlehem

The walk began in the school building with the procession singing as they followed our Mary (Jessica) and Joseph (Austin) outside onto the school's field.

 With the way lit by hundreds of luminaria, Mary and Joseph made their way from place to place looking for lodging for the night. Photo courtesy of Miles City Star*

 The inn keeper at the next stop has no room for the Holy Family.


The last outdoor stop is also unsuccessful for the couple as they are turned away yet again.

Fortunately, Mary and Joseph finally do find a place in the manger of an inn.

Our Las Posadas procession ended back in the school building in the cafeteria with singing, cookies, and beverages for all.

Thanks to Mrs. Green and Mrs. Fidel for orgainzing the event.

*Also, thanks to Steve Allison of the Miles City Star for supplying the luminaria photos and school secretary Mrs. Toennis for the other photos.
