Schedule for Monday Mornings…


babySloth1 Though ye are not many, ye who join us for morning sitting during the week, those of you who do, please note: We’ve selected the last Monday morning of each month as a time to be closed, with regular sitting resuming at 6 p.m. that evening. Initially, we had tried having this the case for months with no national holiday, but having the same arrangement for each month turns out to be less confusing for people. Thank you always for your ongoing support of our temple and its community.


Study Hour CANCELED Tonight

Study hour is canceled for tonight and unavailable next week (Myo out of town).  Please join us October 9th to resume from our lengthy break  :~(
