El día de los muertos

The “Day of the dead” (“El dia de los muertos” in Spanish) is a Mexican celebration associated with the Feast of All Souls. All Souls Day (2 November) marks the beginning of the month of November during which we pray for those who have died, our relatives, friends, and people who have no one to pray for them. We pray, that through his mercy, the Holy Souls may soon enjoy eternal happiness with God in heaven.

In Mexico, Catholics regard 2 November as a day of celebration. At De Lisle, we commemorated All Souls Day with a beautiful liturgy led by our Lay Chaplain, Mr Agius. Then at lunchtime we had our very own Mexican-style fiesta! The dining room looked fantastic with traditional decorations. The students enjoyed a range of Mexican dishes, including De Lisle’s fiery chilli con carne with guacamole and sour cream. Arriba!
