Posada statue journeys to care home in Wisbech

The Posada statue of Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus made its way into a care home in Wisbech during December, reports Sean Finlay.

Amanda and Mark Wilson, from Our Lady and St Charles Church, are pictured presenting the Posada to Marion Crampton, a resident at Dove Court Care Home.   Also in the photograph are Robin Hine, secretary of Wisbech Churches Together and Annie Pinto, from Our Lady.

Amanda said: “Having the Posada in our home was  helpful way for us to convey to our three children the real meaning of Christmas, and that Jesus and his family were refugees in need of care and love.”

Robin said that in his last parish in Livingstone in Scotland the Posada figures were made of wool and travelled around the community, to supermarkets and even to a football game.
