Mochi Tsuki 2018

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Please join us on Saturday December 29th at 9am for our annual TBC Sangha Mochi Tsuki – all volunteers are welcome!

It has been a Toronto Buddhist Church tradition for many years to gather at our Temple just before New Year’s with our families and friends and make Mochi. To those of you who have generously volunteered your time in the past, I hope you will be able to assist us again. For those of you who have not previously attended Mochi Tsuki, I invite you to take part and hope that you will consider making this event a part of your annual calendar of events.

On Friday December 28th in the afternoon, volunteers will be working hard to wash rice, prepare lunch and set up the Social Hall for Mochi Tsuki the following day.

On Saturday December 29th, bright and early at 9am, we will start Mochi Tsuki. Steamed rice will be pounded into a
uniform consistency and then formed into patties to be cooled and packaged. All volunteers will be provided a delicious lunch (vegan menu will be available)!

In order to reserve your mochi, please submit your completed order by Friday December 21st. Remember, you must pick up your mochi on Saturday December 29th after 12pm.

In Gassho, Cary Kataoka. President, TBC Sangha Group
