Oct. 16, 2018 Dia de los Muertos - Honoring those who have gone before us

Christ Church will be honoring Dia de los Muertos as part of our All Saints Day celebration this year. Celebrating this holiday enriches the body of the church with a renewed understanding of this ancient custom. It reminds us that we are the People of the Resurrection, followers of the Risen Christ.

On Sunday, November 4th, there will be a traditional Dia de los Muertos ofrenda (altar) set in the Memorial Garden. A traditional altar usually includes pictures of the departed, candles, marigolds, pan de muerto, and many other items. We would like to invite you to bring in photographs of your departed loved ones to include on the ofrenda. Pictures should be 4 x 6, or smaller, and be in a frame.

The Christ Church Middle School Youth Group will be preparing pan de muerto and setting the altar on November 3. All pictures should be brought to the Christ Church office no later than November 1st. Please contact Charlette Preslar, with any questions.
