Obon Ceremonies, July 30 & 31

British Columbia Buddhism in Canada Buddhist community Death Events

From The Comox Valley Echo:

This year, on July 30 and 31, Reverend Grant Ikuta, the resident minister for the Steveston Buddhist Temple and recently-elected Bishop of the Jodo Shinshu Buddhist Temples of Canada, will be visiting five Japanese-Canadian cemetery sites on Vancouver Island and performing an additional Obon service at a private residence.

The Buddhist service at each location will be quite brief, but the minister will spend some time before and after the services tidying graves and monuments.

The public is invited to help with the cleanup and attend the services.
