Memorial Services

 The memorial services in our Jodo Shinshu tradition are not held for comforting the spirit of the deceased but rather for those of us who remain in this world, so that we may hear the teachings of Dharma, or the truth, and realize how fragile yet precious our lives are.


  These precious opportunities are given to each of us that we may strengthen our relationships with family and friends and deepen our understanding of life through the Jodo Shinshu teachings. It is also a way to truly respond to the wishes of our beloved ones in our daily lives.

Below are the suggested memorial services(SVC) for this year, 2016.
