On Advent Sunday, 1st December 2013, Mary and Joseph and the donkey from our children’s nativity set begin their annual special journey around our parish and area, they visit homes, instituions, schools… This is our ‘Parish Posada’. Hopefully they arrive in Church on Christmas Eve. They made the journey successfully last Advent and kept a blog of their journey – you can read it by clicking here.
We need YOUR help! Each year we vote for the donkey’s name. We invite you to choose.
Laura and Mathew have put together a short list. Now the lines are open for you to cast your vote. The suggested names are, in alphabetical order:
Elisheba, Wife of Aaron (Exodus 6.23)
Esther, Queen of the Persian Empire (Book of Esther)
Huldah, A prophet (2 Kings 22.14)
Merab, Saul’s eldest daughter (1 Samuel 14.49)
The poll is now closed and the winner is ESTHER
we look forward to following Esther’s travels in our Posada blog.
