For "Una Noche de Navidad" (A Night of Christmas), the Historic Florida Militia and the National Shrine at the Mission Nombre de Dios join forces to recreate a Spanish tradition that commemorates the search Mary and Joseph undertook for a safe place to stay before the birth of Jesus. In addition to the Procession of "Las Posadas" (the Inns), the mission will offer eucharistic adoration, a live nativity, and cookies and hot cocoa. This is a participatory event, with guests walking in the procession.
