Dia de los Muertos

October 28, 2018 - 10:15am

Pat Sanders will lead a service about the "Dia de los Muertos", the Day of the Dead, a Mexican holiday. Day of the Dead festivities unfold over two days in an explosion of color and life-affirming joy. The theme is death, but the point is to demonstrate love and respect for deceased family members. We will explore the elements of the celebration such as the calaveras, foods, papel picado and more. We will have an ofrenda, or altar, prepared and participants can bring a photo of a deceased loved one to add to the altar.
