Sunday, November 1 at 5:00 p.m. in the Columbarium
We gather together physically for a Dia de los Muertos celebration this Sunday, November 1, outdoors in the Columbarium. Wear masks, practice safe distancing, and a framed picture of your beloved deceased. The framed pictures will be placed upon the Ofrenda at the start of the celebration and taken home after the conclusion of the ceremony. Seating will be available at the celebration. Attendance will be limited to the first 20 who sign-up by emailing your intention to firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday, October 31st, at noon.
Each year on November 1 and 2, many communities participate in “Dia de Los Muertos,” otherwise known in English as “the day of the dead.” However, this celebration is not a time of frights or treats like Halloween. Dia de Los Muertos is a celebration of the lives of those who have died and gone before us. Colorful family altars known as “Ofrendas” evoke both the memory of our beloved deceased and the festive abundance that is our life in God.
