Unitarians to host Oct. 26 Day of the Dead service

KELSEYVILLE, Calif. – On Sunday, Oct. 26, the Unitarian Universalist Community of Lake County will hold a Dia de los Muertos – “Day of the Dead” – service and ceremony. 

The service begins at 11 a.m. at the church located at the corner of First and Main streets in Kelseyville. 

Guests are encouraged to attend, and are invited to bring a photo or memento of a deceased friend or relative for the altar.

The Dia de los Muertos is an annual holiday that combines the Roman Catholic All Saints and All Souls Day rituals with 2,000-year-old Mexican Indian traditions. 

The service mixes celebration and mourning as a way to remember those who have gone before. 

An altar, or “Ofrenda,” will be created to honor the dead.

Unitarian Universalists honor and celebrate a variety of religious and spiritual traditions. 

The service on Sunday will offer a perspective into an ancient ceremony that is an important part of the religious traditions of many.

It will be a celebration and affirmation of life.

For more information, call 707-279-4387.
