Trinity JHS's Posada and Pastorella at
St. Scholastica Monastery

The Rule of Benedict instructs us to "welcome others as Christ," so when a band of angels, shepherds, devils (!) and a young expectant couple came to the monastery door seeking shelter, the sisters didn't give them TOO hard a time before welcoming them in. "You're Joseph? Your wife is Mary? Come as pilgrims, I did not recognize you" they sang en Espagnol. They were rewarded with a band concert and a Nativity play, followed by the annual breaking of the pinata! In the spirit of Benedictine hospitality, they had a vast assortment of cookies and hot cocoa for their honored guests.
