Show Your Creativity!

This is your chance as we are looking for some Buddhist captions for both T-shirts and Aprons that we will be selling at the Omatsuri Festival.

Please submit your ideas for captions in person in the “Buddhist Caption Suggestion Box” which you can find in the temple foyer, or by email to:

Come up with a phrase that you would like to see on the t-shirts and/or aprons, and we will all be invited to place our vote to choose the winning caption. The caption will then be coupled with an image that will complete the product!

Submission deadline is May 7th so that there is time for the voting, tally and to have the items produced. Voting will take place by ballot on May 14th and May 21st at the temple, directly after service.

All proceeds will benefit the Calgary Buddhist Temple.

Best of luck and have fun!!!

Hello Calgary Buddhist Temple Friends,

Spring is on its way and so is Hanamatsuri on April 9, 2017. We would like to sell gyozas (potstickers) at Hanamatsuri and will be making them on Saturday, March 25, 2017 from 9:00 am to noon. Join us to make homemade gyozas with Jackie’s special recipe!

Let us know you’re able to help by signing up:

Come out and join the Temple community by getting involved in gyoza making! It’s a great way to get to know people, work together on a common purpose, and support the community. Beginners welcome!

Thank you for your support!
