"Those whose lives are closely linked with ours"

That has always been one of my favorites in the Prayers of the People ... and now the marvels of modern multiplatform communication has given us even more ways to be "closely linked" with those who both are and have been in our lives. Case in point is this "virtual" Altar of Remembrance for Dia de los Muertos here at All Saints Church ... the opportunity to celebrate the lives of those we love but see no more ... not just at the chapel altar on November 2nd but online on our vitual altar. Check it out:

Whoever you are and wherever you find yourself on your journey this week, you can be part of our Dia de los Muertos celebration here at All Saints Church … by posting up a photo a memory of your loved one on our virtual Altar of Remembrance.

"Dia de los Muertos" is a festive and colorful celebration in which we honor our loved ones as they were when they were alive. Particpants are encouraged to bring photographs, garments, flowers, favorite foods, stories, or other reminders of loved ones to decorate the Altar of Remembrance.

The service will be held in the All Saints Chapel beginning at 7:30pm on Wednesday, November 2nd. Zelda Kennedy will preside.

This year, a "virtual" Altar of Remembrance has been created to invite those who cannot be present in the All Saints Chapel on Wednesday evening to honor their loved ones by posting a photo and a remembrance here. We will then gather ALL these names together, along with our memories, in thanksgiving and prayer.
