HIGAN-E & BAKE SALE

 

Sunday, March 19, 2017 is our Spring O-Higan Service with the monthly memorial service. Higan literally means ‘the other shore’, the realm of enlightenment which can be reached by crossing over the sea by means of spiritual practice. This happens gradually by performing good deeds and accumulating good actions such as visiting the temple and family grave.

 

We will also sponsor our Spring Bake & Craft Sale.  Our bakers and crafters are always thinking of something that will please the members.  Come early and look to see what will make your taste buds happy and craft items to give as gifts or keep for yourself. All proceeds go to the temple general fund. We look forward to your attendance.
