Open your heart and walk with Mary and Joseph through the Door to Bethlehem at the Seton Shrine in Emmitsburg, MD, on December 6-8.
Based on the tradition of Las Posadas, a guide will lead the Door to Bethlehem tour, where you’ll walk with the Holy Family 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. The evening will conclude with time for quiet prayer and light refreshments.
Times: December 6 at 5-7:30pm and December 7 and 8 at 4-6:30pm. Each night, a new walk begins every 15 minutes
