Description

The students of SPA 320 (Latin American Culture), OLAS, MOSAIC and CROSSROADS invite you to take part in "Ofrenda: Day of the Dead Celebratory Ceremony." The celebration begins with a candle lit processional from the Campus Center at 7:00 p.m. to Christ Chapel. The chapel will be decorated with student altars, sugar skulls and poetry. The ceremony will include a reflection on "la ofrenda / offerings" by Chaplain Rachel Larson, traditional Mexican music performed by students and faculty, student poetry readings, a discussion of the similarities between Halloween and the Day of the Dead and student petitions. After the ceremony, friends are invited to view student altars, enjoy live music and a reception of Mexican homemade bread consumed on this day. Optional: Bring a picture of a loved one who has passed and/or an offering.
