Ringing Temple Bell – December 31, 2020 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 noon
Each year we usually have our New Years Eve service in person and after service those in attendance can ring the temple bell. Due to Covid the New Years Eve service will be held online only at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 31, 2020. The service will be available on our Puna Hongwanji Facebook and YouTube pages. The temple doors will then open from 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 noon for you to drop-in to offer incense and ring the temple bell. During the announcement portion on Sunday, December 27, 2020 Rev. Tomioka explains the significance for ringing the temple bell. The videos are available on our Facebook and YouTube pages. https://youtu.be/rdEXYY0XOAM
When you come to temple on Thursday, December 31, 2020 from 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 noon we will enforce CDC and County guidelines. Please ensure to wear your mask at all times on the property, please sanitize your hands, please keep 6 feet apart from those not in your same household. We want to ensure everyone attending has a nice experience and feels safe and comfortable.
Ring in the New Year on January 1, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. for our online New Year Day Service. This will be available on our Puna Hongwanji Facebook and YouTube pages.
Please have a safe and healthy new year. It will not be the same for everyone, but we must sacrifice now so that later we can all gather again. Happy New Year!
