The Manos Unidas (United Hands) student group at Duke Divinity School will sponsor a Posada Celebration. This Mexican Advent tradition reinacts the Biblical story of Mary and Joseph's searching and finding shelter before the birth of Jesus. The celebration also includes a fellowship meal of tamales and breaking of a piñata.

The student group, which is affiliated with the Hispanic House of Studies, seeks to nurture the body of Christ with a particular care for the Latinao community.
