***DATE CHANGE (New date: Sun 10/29)***

The first Omenaldia was held in 1996 and since then, the Basque community of Boise has gathered together to remember the loved-ones they’ve lost during the past year. This year’s Omenaldia will be celebrated on Sunday, October 29 at 1:30 p.m. at Sacred Heart Church in Boise. Father Anton Egiguren will be the celebrant for the Mass. A potluck will follow in the church hall; please bring a dish, hot or cold, if you’d like to participate. The Omenaldia has become a wonderful way to celebrate the lives of those we’ve lost from our community and for those who’ve passed away far from their relatives here. If you would like someone to be remembered during the service who has died since last October, please contact the Basque Museum at 208-343-2671. Omenaldia is sponsored by the Basque Museum & Cultural Center, the Biotzetik Basque Choir, and the Artzai Ona Basque Catholic Community.
