Join us to pay tribute to loved ones lost at a special ofrenda (altar) created by OMCA’s El Día de los Muertos Volunteer Community Committee.
In remembrance of COVID-19 victims, the altar provides an opportunity to honor those whom we mourn in the community and to create personal offerings to add to the ofrenda.
In collaboration with OMCA’s El Día de los Muertos Volunteer Community Committee, we are honoring The Day of the Dead both onsite and virtually this October and November.
For the past 27 years, we have transformed our campus into a sacred space for our annual community celebration each October. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our annual in-person community celebration will be postponed until next year. Please join us for our special tribute this year as we safely come together both in person and virtually to celebrate El Día de los Muertos with the following activities.
