You are invited to join us in celebrating the lives of our dear ones who have died. For the second year in a row The Mount is adopting the Mexican tradition of Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead. This ages-old custom combines both Aztec and Spanish Catholic rituals for commemorating the lives of departed loved ones. A focal point of the celebration is an ofrenda or altar on which are placed photographs of departed loved ones, their favorite memorabilia and flowers. We hope you can join us for this wonderful celebration! Bring a framed photo (with your name, address and phone# on the back) for the altar.
