Announcements, November 18, 2018

The Center’s next Day of Service is Saturday, December 1. This is a special Day of Service, and lots of fun, because we will prepare our church for Christmas. And that means putting up and decorating a Christmas tree and lots of decorations. As usual, the day starts with private meditation at 9:30 AM, followed by service tasks around 10 and a vegetarian lunch at 12:30 PM.

On Saturday, December 8, the Center will have a Kirtan event sponsored by the Sacramento Center's Young Adults Group. Due to its popularity, the Kirtan will take place in our main chapel from 6-8 PM. Refreshments will be served, and everyone is invited to attend.

Just a reminder that this year Self-Realization Fellowship’s Mother Center Christmas Open House will be held during the weekend, Friday, December 7 through Sunday, December 9. This really is a special event. You are greeted by monastics and can listen to Christmas carols, enjoy Christmas treats, and visit Paramahansa Yogananda’s shrine.

Immediately after this service we are having a play entitled Gopala’s Pure Heart, featuring our Sunday School students. Then we will adjourn to the Social Hall for our Annual Thanksgiving Vegetarian Potluck. Everyone is warmly invited.

Our Sunday Afternoon Meditation Service will not take place today because of the Thanksgiving Potluck and the Five-Hour Meditation Service on Saturday. Also, another schedule change: The Wednesday evening SRF Lessons Study Group is suspended until January 2, 2019.
