This is not a scary service. Instead we joyfully celebrate the loves of friends and loved ones who have died. In addition to special prayers and hymns, we will decorate an offrenda, or memorial offering area. These decorations usually include:
pictures of loved ones
favorite foods or drinks
Flowers (Marigolds, Chrysanthemums, and other favorites)
Bright colored cloths and decorations
Friendly skeletons and sugar skulls
And any item that represents the person whose life you are remembering and celebrating.
We invite you to bring your decorations to church on Sunday and we will have plenty of time at the beginning of the service to decorate.
