Day of the Dead Celebration! Monday, October 29, 2018 at 4:15 p.m., Altar Blessing
Sponsored by the Spiritan Campus Ministry, Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, and Gumberg Library, the Day of the Dead, or Día de los Muertos, is an ancient tradition in many Latin American countries. Professor Mildred López Escudero will explain the customs, and lead the decoration of a communal altar honoring the dead. More information.
Free and open to all. All are welcome to send messages to their loved ones on cut out monarch butterflies, and to sample spicy hot chocolate and Pan de Muerto (bread of the dead). The altar will be on display until November 12.
Alive! Monday, October 29, 2018 at 8 p.m., Chapel of the Holy Spirit
We gather once a month on Monday night at 8 p.m. in the Duquesne Chapel of the Holy Spirit for our ALIVE event with Eucharistic Adoration. ALIVE is a once-monthly opportunity to take some time away from our busy, stressful schedules and sit in Jesus' presence.

Prayer to the Holy Spirit
Breathe in me, Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may reflect you. Act in me, Holy Spirit, that my life may further God's Reign.
Fill my heart, Holy Spirit, that I may love with great kindness. Strengthen me, Holy Spirit, that I may defend the poor and needy.
Embolden me, Holy Spirit, that my life may be a witness to the Gospel. Preserve me, Holy Spirit, that I may always remain your dwelling place.
- adapted from a prayer by St. Augustine
