Commitments to the Community include Hosting O-Bon each August, Sponsoring the Memorial Day Observance at Hakalau Veteran's Park, Offering a Variety of Classes, Providing Monthly Senior Luncheons , Hosting Special Celebrations.
Hosting O-BON each August:
The Jodo Mission comes alive with the celebration of Obon, a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the spirits of one's ancestors. This festival is complete with music, dancing, laughter and lots of food! Usually, dancing takes place on the lawn in front of the Temple.
Sponsoring the MEMORIAL DAY
at the Hakalau Veteran's Park to show respect to both those who were killed in military conflict and to those who served, and to celebrate our community.
Providing Senior Luncheons at the Mission to support the well-being, independence, and dignity of our seniors in an environment of their choice:
These luncheons are held once a month and feature great food, music, exercise, companionship, and lots of laughter. This is a Project Dana* Program supported by the Wailea Village Historic Preservation Community. (*Dana means selfless giving.)
