Dia de los Muertos altar Phoenix

Day of the Dead altars are built during “Día de los Muertos” to honor the lives of those who have passed. They are often quite beautiful creations, constructed with love and care. Creating these altars is one of the most important traditions in Mexico and in Mexican-American communities around the world. 
This year, Br. Javier Garcia, osc, and the Amigos Cruzados committee prepared a beautiful Día de los Muertos ofrenda (Day of the Dead offering) in Campo Hall at Crosier Village. All are invited to stop by the Village and visit.
