Services are generally held every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., consisting of incense offering, chanting, gatha singing, and a Dharma talk. In addition, children and teens of all ages are invited to attend our Dharma school classes, in which younger children participate in arts and crafts, skits, and other fun activities. Older students participate in discussion groups.
Once a month, there is a monthly memorial service, called “Shotsuki,” which is a service in memory of all those who passed away in that month, regardless of year. This service is combined with the regular family service and Dharma school. It is usually held on the second Sunday of the month.
We also hold special services throughout the year to observe the New Year, the Buddha’s birthday, the Spring and Fall equinox, Obon dance and service, Shinran’s memorial, and the day the Buddha was enlightened (Nirvana Day).
Please check the calendar for exact dates of special services and to confirm weekly family services and Dharma school.
