Door to Bethlehem

On the first Christmas Eve, Joseph and Mary wandered through the streets of Bethlehem, looking for shelter. All doors, however, were shut to them. In our busy lives today, we too may shut the door to our hearts on Jesus and His family.

Door to Bethlehem is based on the tradition of Las Posadas. You’ll join Mary and Joseph on their journey to Bethlehem as they search for shelter. A guide will lead the tour to various locations on the grounds of the Seton Shrine. At each site, you’ll witness the ways and excuses we may use to reject Christ.

The end of the walk will bring you to our Basilica, where you will pass through the Door to Bethlehem and experience how Christ is welcomed in an unexpected way. This year, make the Door to Bethlehem part of your family’s Advent traditions.

(Auditions: Oct 26 & 27, Nov 3 from 6:30-8:30pm. Email Becca at becca.corbell@setonshrine.org to learn more!)
