St. Mary’s Las Posadas Procession

Raymond Hernandez and Karen Cortes-Zermeno , both fifth grade students at Storm Lake St. Mary’s School led the parish Las Posadas procession Sunday afternoon, reenacting Joseph and Mary’s search for shelter when there was “no room at the inn.”

The faithful knock on doors and told there’s no room until they are finally welcomed in. This Mexican tradition is played out each year at St. Mary’s Parish as the Hispanic community prepares to celebrate the Nativity of the Lord on December 25.
