Tomorrow, we will celebrate All Saints Day. All Saints Day is a day we honor the loved ones who have passed. In Mexican heritage, it is referred to as “Día De Los Muertos” the holiday that connects us with loved ones that are no longer with us. I watch annually the movie "Coco" with my grandson and together we watch this vibrant tale of family and adventure embarking on an extraordinary journey to this magical land of ancestry; it is by far our favorite movie! Because of this tradition, All Saints Day is no longer difficult.
At All Saints Day chapel, we will also celebrate with Holy Communion. On campus, students are invited to receive communion twice a year and if you do not wish for your child to receive communion, please discuss this with your child, so s/he will know not to receive. (A question for this purpose was a part of your child’s Permission/Authorization form, so please inform us in writing if your wishes have changed.) Any child who is not receiving communion should cross arms over his or her chest and they will receive a blessing instead of communion.
