All are welcome to come to The Sacred Well on Thursday, Nov 8 at 5pm to take down Hekate’s altar and build an ofrenda (altar) to Santa Muerte.
According to Enriqueta Romero, one of the people credited with taking Santa Muerte mainstream in Mexico, “She shouldn’t be feared. She is not vengeful, she will not hasten your death. She is part of life and she protects those no one else will.”
Often referred to as a high priestess, Romero has a shrine to Santa Muerte at her home in Tepito, Mexico, where people come from around the globe to worship and give offerings to their saint. La Santa is estimated to have over 10 million followers worldwide.
A group of Mt Shasta Goddess Temple pilgrims recently visited Doña Queta’s shrine to Santa Muerte in Tepito, and we will share photos, chants and songs during this altar building experience.
Free and open to the public.
