Children’s Jukai Postponed

After consulting with the Youth Program coordinator, Chris Maley, and a number of Sangha parents, we’ve decided to postpone Children’s Jukai until sometime this summer. It turns out that many of the families involved in the Youth Program are going away this Memorial Day weekend, so we’re hoping to reschedule it for an upcoming Youth Sunday.

Buddha’s Birthday is Almost Upon Us!

We hope you can make it! The full schedule is here. A reminder to bring either a vegetarian main dish or a salad (fruit salad counts) to serve eight for the potluck on Saturday. The Center will provide veggie burgers and Not Dogs, drinks, and dessert (featuring a pyramid of cupcakes).

Note that the Center will be closed Sunday and Monday, May 28 and 29. The in-person sitting schedule will resume on Tuesday morning. However, there will be a Zoom sitting on both Monday morning and evening at the usual times.
