HALLOWEEN PARTY - October 28

 

On Sunday, October 28th, Zenshuji will host a HALLOWEEN fun activity event for the young children.   The activities will begin at 2:00 pm and conclude with a snack before 4:00 pm.   Activities planned include: face painting, monster arts and crafts, etc.    All young children are invited to attend.   We are looking forward to an afternoon of fun and laughter.

SHICHI-GO-SAN (7-5-3) SERVICE

 

Zenshuji Temple’s celebration for children’s Shichi-Go-San (7-5-3 years old) will be held on Sunday, November 18th at 11:00 am AND 2 pm.  You can pick either time to register.

 

Usually girls of 7 years, boys of 5 years and boys and girls of 3 years old go to the local shrine to express gratitude to the Gods for their growth and continued blessings.  The children dress in colorful traditional kimono as they enter the shrine.  If Western attire is worn, the children dress up in party dresses and suits. The children are given candy called “chitoseame” (thousand year candy) to promise them long life.  We order these candies from Japan.  Pictures are taken by the proud parents for these mile stones.  We will have Alan Miyatake of Toyo Miyatake Studio taking pictures for this memorable event.  Come early to take your pictures before the service.  Alan will be downstairs. All children must register with the ministers at Zenshuji.  Please call (213) 624-8658 and make your reservation.
