On Friday, Dec. 14, the Immigration Ministry’s 13th annual Posada will stop at the DePaul Center on the Loop Campus. All members of the university community are welcome to view the Posada, or walk and pray in solidarity with immigrants during the event.

The Posada, an event that takes place each year before Christmas, is a re-enactment of Mary and Joseph’s search for lodging in Bethlehem. A celebration will take place at St. Peter’s church in the Loop at the end of the Posada.
