The Lantern Ceremony is meant to give people of all religions a special time to remember, reflect, and offer gratitude to those who have passed on.  The ceremony will also honor the men and women who gave their lives defending our country.  We have created prayer banners in the style of Japanese lanterns and space on the banner will allow people to write their remembrances.  The banners will fly over the bon dancers throughout the evening.  After the bon dance, the banners will be removed and handled in a spiritually respectful way under the guidance of Reverend Wansa.  The Mission is again offering free banners to the public.  All banners will be distributed on a first come/first served basis until they run out.  The booth will open at 5:00 pm. 

 

The public is invited to participate in the Lantern Ceremony, bon dance, and enjoy the taiko drums and delicious food such as teriyaki, musubi, hot dog, chi chi mochi, and andagi.
