In light of the recent news and recommendations from the King County Public Health Department, Seattle Betsuin leadership has made the decision to cancel services and all temple led programs and activities through the month of March. This is a preventative measure, but has been deemed prudent with regard to the health and safety of our Sangha and the extended community.
Services will be cancelled on the following dates:
March 8th, 2020
March 15th, 2020,
March 22nd, 2020
March 29th, 2020
Private services will be streamed on Sunday’s instead of regular Sunday Service so make sure you are tuned in and subscribed to the Seattle Betsuin’s YouTube page. Please feel free to share our page around to others that may be missing Sunday services in the coming weeks.
Please continue to practice proper hygiene by washing your hands frequently (scrubbing for at least 20 seconds), avoid touching your face with unwashed hands, and staying home when you are feeling sick. Updates will be provided via the Seattle Betsuin Buddhist Temple’s website: www.seattlebetsuin.org
A letter from the temple chairperson and Minister on the cancellations is available below.
