St Congan’s pass on Posada Dolls to St John’s, Cuminestown

 

PosadaPosada is traditionally where a Mary and Joseph doll travel around the Parish during Advent seeking hospitality in people’s homes. The plan is to run a Diocesan Posada this year, involving all the nativity characters and in all 42 Churches. They will start in Orkney, Shetland and Braemar and end up at the Cathedral for Christmas Eve, and Inverurie for Epiphany.

This is a great way to connect with children on the fringes of our Churches or ouin Turrifft in the community.DSCF1807

Another great way to connect with children is the Christingle service which takes place at St Congan’s on the  13th December when the collection will be donated to the Aberlour Child Care Trust. Following the service and the distribution of the Christingles  there will be a finger buffet with tea and coffee.
