Honoring Our Ancestors

Day of the Dead and All Soul’s Day is a time to honor our ancestors, celebrating them through stories and song. Visiting guest author, Amada Perez, will be sharing stories about her life and ancestry ( www.amadairmaperez.com ). Reverend Nica and Sam Dickerson will lead this intergenerational service. We invite you to bring photos of your relatives and friends who are no longer with us, both from this community and your families to place on our community altar of remembrance. Let us pull from their love and strength so that we may heal what troubles us, and move toward a more joyous future for all generations.

Join us to bless and celebrate our youth and Religious Education program.
