SJBA will only be organising the KATHINA CEREMONY ONLINE this Sunday, 11 October 2020, for donors and devotees. There will not be any IN-PERSON offerings by the donors due to the need to safeguard the safety and health of our Venerable Monks, volunteer helpers and fellow devotees from Covid-19 infection. The recent spike in Covid-19 infections nationwide as well as within our own neighbourhood USJ is of great concern to many of us. Under such unprecedented conditions, we seek your kind understanding on this matter.
Robes and requisites donated by devotees will be offered to the Venerable Monks on their behalf. Donors will partake in these meritorious deeds ONLINE only.
