Mark the date on your calendar and plan on showing up to share the day with members and Dharma friends. We’re grateful for all the help we can assemble to ease the load.

Ohigan – Sept. 22

The autumn equinox—when day and night are about equal in length—signifies ohigan to Jodo Shinshuists, who see in reflected in the climatic balance a principle of personal harmony. Ohigan will be observed during the regular Sunday service on Sept. 22. The event is noted twice each year, once during the spring equinox and in the fall.

Fall Chow Mein Supper – October 20

The fall chow mein supper is set for Oct. 20 (Sunday). The drive-through event begins at 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. Ticket price is $15 each, available from temple members after Sept. 14. Keep fingers crossed for a warm, sunny autumn afternoon to make the day enjoyable and relaxing.
