Christmas Eve :: Nochebuena


Our transition from Advent to Christmastide begins with Posadas, a Latin American tradition typically held for nine days leading up to Christmas Eve. Posadas recall Joseph and Mary’s search for lodging in Bethlehem before the birth of Jesus, as described in Luke 2. Traditional songs have responsive verses representing the Holy Family’s and the innkeepers’ perspectives.

Nuestra transición de Adviento hasta Navidad comienza con Las Posadas, una tradición latinoamericana que típicamente transcurre los nueve días antes de la Nochebuena.  Las Posadas nos recuerdan de cuando José y María buscaron alojamiento en Belén antes del nacimiento de Jesús, descrito por San Lucas, capítulo 2.  Cánticos tradicionales se cantan en forma responsorial, representando las perspectivas de la Familia Sagrada y de los posaderos.

The first Posadas are hosted at OMS members’ houses. Contact Father Cesar for information.

Las primeras Posadas se realizarán en casas de miembros de la congregación.  Contáctese con Padre César para mayor información.

Our final Posada, on Christmas Eve, Monday, December 24, will be at the church building at 7 p.m., and will transition into our bilingual Christmas Eve / Nochebuena service. The service includes Holy Communion and favorite English carols such as Silent Night and Angels We Have Heard on High.

Nuestra Posada final se hará el lunes, 24 de diciembre, Nochebuena, en la iglesia a las 7:00 p.m. y será la iniciación a nuestra misa bilingue de Nochebuena.  Además de celebrar la Santa Comunión, cantaremos villancicos tradicionales.

In many parts of Latin America, a Kermes is a combination of a church carnival and bazaar. Ours will have food, music, and crowning of carnival king and queen from among our youth. A Kermes is a fundraiser for the church, but also a chance to connect with the greater community. 

Food we're planning to have - for which we'll ask a small donation - includes

  • Barbacoa tacos

  • Green pozole

  • Red menudo

  • Mole

  • Arroz con frijoles (rice and beans)

  • Valencia rice

  • Roasted corn on the cob

  • Fruit and vegetable salads

Our Kermes is timed for mid-September to recognize and celebrate various North, Central, and South American nations gaining their independence at this time: 

  • Mexico first declared independence from Spain on September 16, 1810, which began an 11-year war for independence

  • Chile followed Mexico's lead by declaring independence from Spain on September 18, 1810

  • As the Mexican War for Independence was drawing to a close, the portions of Central America that became the modern nations of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua declared their independence from Spain on September 15, 1821

  • Colonel Agustin de Iturbide and his forces entered Mexico City on September 27, 1821 - the day commonly regarded as the end of the Mexican War for Independence. The following day, he installed a 38-member Provisional Governing Board, which drafted a formal declaration of independence

  • The Republic of Chile adopted its current constitution on September 11, 1980

  • Belize gained its independence from the United Kingdom on September 21, 1981, and became a full member of the Commonwealth of Nations

One Kermes tradition is to crown a king and queen of the carnival. Instead of being a popularity contest, our festival royalty will be based on who can do the most fundraising. Each dollar raised counts as one vote, and our youth will have sheets to record your contribution. Please bring some small bills, because fundraising will continue through the lunch festivities. 

Will you join us at our fiesta in the garden south of the church building, off Wyandot Street at the corner of 32nd Avenue?
