Every month, we hold a Monthly Service & Memorial at Zenshuji. It is often (but not
always) held on the third Sunday of each month at 11:00 a.m. The service consists
of chanting four relatively short sutras. The head priest then reads the names of
particular deceased family members, the names of families in attendance, and there
is also an opportunity for each person to offer incense. Following this, Dharma talks
are given: one in Japanese and one in English. Everyone is then invited to have lunch
with the Zenshuji community.
