Welcome to the Gardena Buddhist Church
This year the Gardena Buddhist Church is proud to announce that we will be hosting our Obon “Festival.” This year, unfortunately due to the on-going pandemic, we will not be able to host our regular program. However, it is also because of our current circumstances that for this year—a year that marks the 95th anniversary of our temple—we would like to turn the focus of the Festival towards service to the community.
On August 14 (Saturday) from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm we will be sponsoring a food drive. To help with these efforts the temple has prepared a special gift for the first 200 donors.
On Sunday, August 15 we will be hosting our Obon Services, together with a remote Obon Odori, Bingo and other drawings. Please join us and help everyone know that despite the pandemic and all of the people we have been separated from and all the things we may have lost during this time, that there is still much to celebrate!
