NOTICE REGARDING CORONA VIRUS

お寺よりお報せ

常に変化する新型コロナウイルス、通称COVID  19のパンデミックの現状に世界中が振り 回せれている中、昨日、カナダ政府は新型コロナウイルス感染拡大防止策の一環として、50人以上のイベントや集会等の中止を発表しました。更に、カナダ政府、並びにBC州政府はこれまで以上に徹底して、引き続きCOVID 19の感染予防に努めるよう、全国民に協力を求めました。

従って、ステイーブストン仏教会も早速この要望に答えるため、3月と4月の法要、更に集会等、全てを中止することにしました。これは、日曜礼拝を含む、全ての法要です。ダーマスクールクラス、祥月法要、花祭り法要、講習会、そして萌の会も中止になります。尚、毎月のメープルレジデンスへの訪問も中止に致します。このようなお報せは大変心苦しく思いますが、思いもよらなかった現代社会でのパンデミック現象ですので、皆様どうぞご了承下さいませ。

不安な日々から、一日でも早く回復し、今まで通り安穏に法要を行うことが出来ますことそして、皆様,お一人おひとりがご自愛下さいますよう、心から念じております。

合掌

Dear Friends of the Dharma,

 Due to the ever changing nature of the Covid 19 Pandemic which we are experiencing globally, the government of Canada just announced today that all gatherings of 50 people or more should be cancelled. Both the Provincial and Federal Governments are asking all of us to help in the fight against the spreading of the Covid 19 virus.

To do our part, effective immediately, the Steveston Buddhist Temple will be cancelling all of its services and classes held at the temple for the rest of March and all of April. This includes all regular Sunday services, Dharma School classes, Shotsuki service, Hanamatsuri service, lectures and Moe no Kai gatherings. We will also suspend from visiting Maples Senior housing for their monthly service. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, but we are in unprecedented times experiencing a Pandemic unknown to mankind in the modern era.

We do hope to be able to return to regular services as soon as possible. We ask all of you to 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
