Join us for 2024 Ho-Onko Service

Join us for 2024 Ho-onko service on Sunday, January 21st at 09:30 AM.

What is Ho-onko?

This is the memorial service for Shinran Shonin, the founder of our sect of Buddhism, Jodo Shinshu. As with all of our memorial services, this is a time for us to contemplate the truth of impermanence. It is also an occasion for us to contemplate interconnectedness and express gratitude to the one who has gone before us for helping us to learn about ourselves and our lives. At this occasion, we express our gratitude to Shinran for the teachings that he brought to us by chanting one of his major works, the Shoshinge, and reading his biography.
