40th Annual Las Posadas celebration at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church

LAWTON, Okla. (TNN) - Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Lawton celebrated the Christmas season through Las Posadas.

The tradition re-enacts Mary and Joseph’s journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of a warm place to stay for the night. Monday night, a group of children did the re-enactment, by going to each outside door asking if there is room for them to stay.

Spanish for “lodgings” Las Posadas has been celebrated in Mexico for over 400 years. It’s been going strong at Blessed Sacrament for 40.
