NewsYouth welcome us to the Ofrenda they created in the Memorial Meditation Garden

As All Saint’s Day and Dias de Los Muertos approaches, the CUCC Youth are creating our annual offering or Ofrenda to celebrate those we want to remember. This walk is intended to help us understand the complexity of transitions, the power of memory, and the celebration of life and death. It will also hopefully continue to link us to the experiences we had and the friends we met in Oaxaca Mexico while on our International Mission Trip in 2019.

Please visit our Memorial Meditation Garden anytime from October 30-November 26, and take your time journeying through the walkway. There will be places for you to engage: to remember, to pray, and to leave your own offerings for loved ones.

Photos of loved ones who have died are printed, laminated and hung on the exterior sanctuary windows throughout the garden. Youth will re-hang all photos from last year along with any new photos submitted. If you want to add someone’s photo, please take a picture of a printed photo or send a digital image via text to 919-961-8814 or email to Please send photos by October 29.
