    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

All Saints Day Mass + Dia de los Muertos

This evening I attended the annual All Saints Day Mass at the Queen of Peace Chapel on campus. Campus Ministry organizes the event as well as other activities to engage students from different faith traditions who make up the CSS Community. The Mass was open to all students, faculty, and staff. Following Mass, there was a commemoration of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).  Students learned about the Latin holiday of Dia de los Muertos, particularly its history, the way it is practiced throughout Latin America, and its significance. An ofrenda (altar) was also decorated in the Intercultural Center. I like how students get opportunities to become more culturally aware through such events. This is important as it celebrates diversity and reinforces its importance in community.
