'Caturday: Dia de Los Muertos

The Day of the Dead is traditionally celebrated to remember relatives and friends who have passed away. Let us also remember the Wildcats who have gone before us and, last but not least, those beloved pets who gave us comfort.

For those who wish to celebrate Dia de los Muertos with La Misa en Español, or the Mass in Spanish, a special mass will be said today in Corr Hall at 5:30 p.m.

According to Tim O’Connell, “we will remember our deceased loved ones during the Mass. Please bring a photo or symbol for someone for whom you would like to pray. All are welcome! Bilingual missals will be available to follow the Mass. We will have music this Saturday and Mexican food after Mass.”



Find Day of the Dead resources on the library website. You can also attend Dia de los muertos activities on Monday, November 2 from 10-11 a.m. in the St. Augustine Center.
