On Halloween, we hosted an Open House for over 700 neighborhood trick-or-treaters and their families at Advent and Nuestra Señora! Visitors could use the church's washrooms. We distributed candy, offered hot tea and coffee to the grown-ups and water for the children. We even had "pan"/"bread" for Dia de los Muertos for parents and children. In the chapel, visitors could stop at our Dia de los Muertos altar and include the names of their beloved departed relatives and friends in the prayer list for our November 4 "All Saints" Eucharist. Our Dia de los Muertos altar will continue through the end of November. All are welcome to leave a memento of a beloved deceased on the altar.
