Thank you for following the Preventative Guidelines of the Coronavirus (Covid-19)
to keep yourself, family and community safe. It seems that we have not peeked yet
so we will be staying at home for several more months. By doing our part, we are
trying to avoid the devastation like New York. We don’t know what the future holds

be emotionally, financially and socially. But by following the restrictions, and
guidelines like wearing a mask if you need to go out, we will all be doing our individual
Your support is of utmost importance to Zenshuji. If you know of a member, family
or friend who might need our help please notify the ministers. We will do whatever
we can whether it is getting food, making a welfare call, or sending a caring message.
If you need help, please call the ministers, Fujinkai member, or a Board Member.
Also, Zenshuji missed out on the revenue of Hanamatsuri, April Monthly / Memorial

able to donate to Zenshuji $20, $50, or more, please send it in mail. We don’t
want to cause hardship to anyone but your donation will be greatly appreciated.
Please take care of yourselves and those of your family. Remember to stay at home
as much as possible and call on aging relatives, close friends, and families with
young children. Together we will succeed to fight this virus.
