28th Annual AIDs Posada- Friday, Dec 4th, 2015

On Friday, December 4, we welcome Mary, Joseph and many more pilgrims at the receiving end of the 28th Annual Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic’s AIDs Posada.  The parade starts at the Clinic (3324 Sunset) at 6:30pm and runs south-easterly along Sunset Boulevard, making several stops along the route to hear speakers.  At Alvarado, the procession turns north and arrives at the gate of the Echo Park United Methodist Church (approx. 7:30pm).  We sing the welcoming refrain of The Posada Song, and invite the pilgrims in for hot pozole, a healing liturgy, and entertainment that includes music and dance. Join us in providing Radical Hospitality!
