UPDATE REGARDING CORONA VIRUS

法友の皆様

新型コロナウィルスの蔓延がいくらか収まり規制緩和が第2段階にゆっくりと移っています。宗教的集会も開けるようになりましたが、規制はまだ厳しく、州政府は新型コロナウィルスが広まらないように私たちに協力を要請しています。
過去2か月間、祥月法要も含めた毎日曜日の法座をズーム・ミーティングというのを使い、コンピューターで行っています。今のところ当分はこの方法で行う予定です。それでなるべく多くの皆様にズーム・ミーティングを使っていただけますようお願いします。生田先生にズームで参加することをお知らせして頂ければ(rev.ikuta@steveston-temple.ca)、先生から招待のメールが届きます。ズームでの法座にまだ参加したことがない方はぜひ試してみてください。参加者のお顔も見え、声も聞こえて楽しいです。
ズーム・ミーティングがコンピューターに無かったりでオンラインに参加できない方は、6月7日午前10:00の祥月法要から毎週日曜日の常例法座に直接お寺にお出でになれます。けれど、お互いの距離を保つため30人しか参加できませんので、前もってお寺に予約を入れて下さい。参加者が30人になりましたら、せっかく来ていただいてもお帰り願うことになりますので。
お寺にいらっしゃる方は必ずマスクをし、手を消毒して下さい。また茶菓のサービスはありません。さらに、ご家族同士、お友達同士でお話をなさりたい方は、ロビーではなく外でお願いいたします。ズーム・ミーティングを使える方は出来る限りそれを使い、それがどうしても使えない方だけがお寺にお出で下さい。その場合も前述のように必ずお寺に予約を入れて下さい。
この困難な時期を乗り切るために皆様のご理解とご協力を頂き、今私達に出来る最善のサービスを皆様に提供できることに心から感謝いたします。お寺の最新情報も、生田先生の法話のビデオもお寺のウエッブサイトで見る事が出来ます。これからも衛生面にはお気を付けてどうぞお元気でお過ごしください。以前と変わらぬご支援、ご協力どうもありがとうございます。

Dear Friends of the Dharma,

 As we slowly and cautiously move into phase 2 of the Covid 19 Pandemic recovery, the Provincial Government has announced that religious gatherings may take place under very strict guidelines. They are asking all of us to help in the ongoing battle against the spreading of the Covid 19 virus.

For the past couple of months, we have been holding regular services, including the Shotsuki services using the social media platform Zoom Meetings. For the foreseeable future, we are planning on continuing with this format. We encourage you to use this platform where all possible and please contact Rev. Ikuta at rev.ikuta@steveston-temple.ca to receive an invitation to join the service. If you have never tried the Zoom Sunday Service, we highly recommend that you do as you will be in for an uplifting experience.

For those who may not be able to access the Zoom Meeting platform, starting with the June Shotsuki Monthly Memorial Service which will start at 10:00 am, we will allow a limited number of people to join the service live at the temple. We will be restricting the number of people attending the services in person to a maximum of 30 people to ensure physical distancing. Please contact the temple ahead of time reserve your space for the Sunday service as we will be turning away people once we reach the capacity number.

We thank you for your ongoing cooperation and understanding and we look forward to continuing serving you to the best of our ability. Please visit our website for any updates as well as to watch Dharma services uploaded by Rev. Ikuta. Please remain vigilant by taking care of your personal hygiene and may you all stay well during this time. Thank you for your continued support of the temple.

In Gassho,

Namo Amida Butsu

Welcome to the Steveston Buddhist Temple

The Steveston Buddhist Temple has been spreading the Dharma to many generations of people since 1928, and has continued to serve its members and the community from that time through to today. Our regular Sunday Family Service is an excellent opportunity for families and friends to listen to the Dharma together, and various esteemed guest ministers are invited to speak at special Buddhist services throughout the year. There is also a Monthly Memorial Services for everyone to show our gratitude and respect to parents and relatives who have passed away.
