Religious Education – Day of the Dead Altars

Reflections – November 2021

As a way to celebrate the feasts of All Saints and All Souls, the religious education 7th and 8th Grade Students were asked to create a Dios del Muertos (Day of the Dead) Altar. It was a an activity to demonstrate their love and honor the people and pets in their lives that have died. The students were both thoughtful and creative in the construction of their at-home altars of remembrance. Some were colorful; some had items that are connected to the deceased person; many included photos. Below are some of the pictures.

Something I learned about my faith…

  1. How saints are picked and created
  2. I learned that I believe in the after life
  3. That God is always around us
  4. Martyrs died for their faith
  5. I can be a saint too
  6. It is ok to talk about your loved ones that passed away
  7. It is up to you to have a relationship with God
  8. The people that passed before you are always there for you
  9. The dead are not gone, you just can’t see them
