~Starting the month of November at SJS meant remembering those who have gone before us.
Although the Feast of All Saints was celebrated on November 1, first graders donned their finest saintly garb on Monday and reminded us that we are all saints in the making.
Upper level Spanish students erected an ofrenda. Students learned about this essential element of El Dia de los Muertos or All Souls Day. Constructing the ofrenda is a beautiful ritual in which Mexican families happily and lovingly remember their loved relatives who have died. The ofrenda was displayed in the Gathering Space for all to enjoy.
Photos of the ofrenda and All Saints Day celebration are in this week’s Fodder.
~Beginning on the First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 2014, the time of the Sunday Mass in the Parish Center will change from 11:45am to 11:30am.
