Christmas Posadas in Aztec, NM
Dec 16 – Dec 24 all-day

Christmas Posadas: Families, Church organizations, or ministries from both parishes please consider hosting one evening of Posadas. Posadas is a joint event for both parishes. Beginning Sunday, December 16, through Christmas Eve. It is a celebration of Jesus’ Nativity, when His parents Joseph and Mary, with Jesus in her womb, were looking for a place to stay. Posada is Spanish for lodging or accommodation. As host, your location will be designated as an “inn” and you will be the “innkeeper”. This has been a tradition of our parishes for many years. We are requesting that those hosting Posadas in St. Joseph Hall decorate/undecorated the Christmas Tree and tables. A time will be determined once the Posada schedule is complete. Call the parish office for the date you prefer. Dec. 17th, has already been booked.

Catholic Charities Christmas Sale

Pray a Rosary for Healing with Bishop Wall
Dec 19 @ 6:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Bishop Wall will lead the Rosary every Wednesday of Advent, December 5, 12, and 19 at 6:00 PM, at Sacred Heart Retreat Center Chapel for healing for the survivors of abuse in the Diocese of Gallup. Please join us in praying for God’s blessing of healing.

Advent is a time of movement in the ways of God. God’s people await the fulfillment of God’s promises of light and mercy in a Savior. We walk with them with the same hope for peace and unity. We meet Mary and Joseph, whose journey of faith and trust in God brings healing to all, in all times, in the One who Saves, Jesus! Let us recount the events of God’s great gifts in the prayer of the Rosary.
