Please JOIN us for a special blessing of the Ofrenda (Altar) by Deacon Joe Fitzgerald from UA-Banner South Campus Medical Center
Many countries celebrate "Dia de Los Santos" (All Saints Day, November 1st) and "Dia de Los Muertos (All Souls Day, November 2nd) including the southwestern U.S. and other parts of the Americas. This is a ritual blend of indigenous and Catholic traditions. El Dia de Los Muertos is celebrated in many parts of the world as a time to remember loved ones and honor their memory. People go to gravesites with flowers, food and favorite beverages. Families decorate altars dedicated to their loved ones and surround them with pictures and flowers while sharing food, music and dance to celebrate the continuity of life and death.
