Sunday, November 6th- Dia de los Muertos- Rev. Barry Bloom
The Day of the Dead service. A time of remembering, of celebrating those who have passed from this world. We are grateful to the indigenous people of Mexico who have given us this way of playfully celebrating, rather than only grieving, our losses. Please bring flowers to place on our ofrende (altar) in memory of your loved ones. Also pictures or mementos to remember them by. You will be invited to briefly tell us of those who have passed from your lives.
RE: Multi-gen Day of the Dead Service
DON'T FORGET: Don't forget to FALL BACK one hour Sunday night at 2am for Daylight Savings Time!
