UPCOMING SERVICES

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1年間、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。

もしお寺に直接お参りをしたいと希望される方も6月より毎週日曜日の日曜礼拝に参加することが出来ます。尚、お互いの距離を保つため40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。

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 cautiously move into phase 3 of the Covid 19 Pandemic recovery, the Provincial Government continues to ask us to remain vigilant in the ongoing battle against the spreading of the Covid 19 virus.

From last month, we began opening the temple for some in person participation while following the strict social distancing guidelines set forth by the Provincial Government. We have also been continuing with 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.

Again, for only those who may not be able to access the Zoom Meeting platform, we can accommodate up to 40 people participating in person at any one service. All our English Sunday services are now starting at 10:00 am with a Japanese service following it at 11:30 am. Please contact the temple ahead of time to reserve your space for the Sunday service as we will be turning away people once we reach the capacity number. The following is a schedule of upcoming services:

There is also a Monthly Memorial Services for everyone to show our gratitude and respect to parents and relatives who have passed away.
