                     Next  Event:   Sart  Thai  Day  สารทไทย 
                                   Sunday...20 Sep 2015...10 am- 1 pm
        
Sart Thai Day is not one of our festive events like the recent Queen's Birthday celebrations...it is a day of reflection and merit making for past relatives.

The word Sart, derived from the Pali language, means season and in particular autumn or fall. Sart Thai day is also referred to as Memorial Day. 
This is not Memorial Day as Americans might assume. In Thailand, Sart Thai is a time to remember dead relatives with prayers, Buddhist rituals, 
and merit  making on their behalf.

     Here at our temple... we will have the monks chanting and sharing advice to members,
       alms given to monks, and then members offering to the monks food, clothing, and other
       daily needs  that will be then symbolically passed on to our deceased family members.


        We will  have  the usual 'Sunday'  Food Service at this event...
           Please  invite your friends to come and say hello and enjoy the food and events.                          


                                                        Coming Up:  Kathin Day...Sunday 1 Nov 2015
