Belonging to our Ancestors

Services are at 9:15 and 11:00am

During this time celebrating the religious festivals of All Souls, Dia de los Muertos, Diwali and Samhain, this Sunday we honor our ancestors. You are invited to bring photographs or other mementos of deceased loved ones for our communal altar, so that we may collectively pay tribute to our ancestors. We will explore the sense of belonging to our ancestors, both within this community and within our own lives, and discover how that informs our lives today. Join us for this special service of remembrance.

Please join us for a very special single service at 10am, followed by a lively celebration.

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.
