Sangha Day and Food Drive

Please Join us for a Complimentary Lunch on Sangha Day – February 19th, 2023

It is difficult to believe that we have not had to opportunity to celebrate Sangha Day / Nirvana Day by hosting our annual complimentary lunch for three long years. It is my privilege and honour to declare:

Free Lunch!

Please join us for a complimentary lunch following Nirvana Day service; both a regular menu and vegan menu will be available.

For over 70 years, the TBC Sangha volunteer group has had the privilege of providing volunteer support and hosting events at our Temple. Each year we host events such as Sangha Day, Hanamatsuri Family Banquet, Pancake Lunch and Mochi Tsuki. We have also undertaken projects such as video broadcasting services for our Temple.

Our aim is to host events and sponsor projects which honour the history of our Temple, allow families to spend time together and make it attractive for families to attend our Temple. If you have attended and enjoyed any of our services or events in the past, please consider volunteering so that we may continue to host these and other events and services in the future.

In Gassho,

Cary Kataoka (
President TBC Sangha


We are so lucky to have food on our tables every day. Please help the Temple show our generosity and
compassion for the less fortunate in our city. Bring non perishable items to the luncheon or any time this month to help put food on the tables of some of these families.

Thank you for your support.
