Christmas Concert: This Wednesday!

Posada: An Invitation To Attend and A Call For Donations
A "posada" is a re-enactment of the journey of Joseph and Mary asking for lodging for the birth of Jesus.
Traditionally, the participants in the posada receive refreshments. We would appreciate any donation of cookies, which would be given to students and guests.
Thank you for your generosity.
