Remembering our Departed Loved Ones

Participate in the Ofrenda - Students have built an ofrenda in the Commons at Sheil's Evanston campus, located at 2110 Sheridan Road. Throughout the month of November, you are invited to help "build" the altar by adding an image of your departed loved ones. If you have an image that you would like to add to the Sheil Ofrenda (altar), you may place a copy of it on the ofrenda in the Commons (please write your name and email on the back). If you live at a distance and are unable to visit Sheil, you may send a copy of your photo via email to Wioletta here and she will print it out for you and place it on the altar.
