Henry, Hannah or Cocoa – what’s your choice?

The time has come again to name Mary’s Donkey for St Chrysostom’s Posada 2015!  Posada is the version of the Mexican tradition that St. C’s has adopted of carrying around our small knitted figures of Mary, Joseph, and the donkey around the parish to visit many different locations until they arrive at Church during the Christmas Eve service.

Donkey 15 useEvery year we have a poll to name the donkey something new.  This year we had the idea to tie our naming of the blessed carrier of Mary with the Donkey Sanctuary in nearby Gorton by choosing one of their donkeys to adopt for the year.

Our little donkey friend will be named with the most popular name in our poll of the three possible donkeys to be adopted.

The poll is now closed, the votes counted and verified and we are pleased to say that this year Mary’s donkey is called…..


(Cocoa received 62.5% of the votes, Henry 20.8% and Hannah 16.7%)

And so we will ‘adopt’ Cocoa at Gorton Donkey Sanctuary for a year.

Thank you to all who cast their votes.
