Robe Offering Ceremony 2021
November 7 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am UTC+10
The BSV committee invites everyone to join the BSV Robe Offering Ceremony – a ceremony to offer virtual robes and other requisites to the Sangha as an expression of their gratitude.
When we think of Katina, we think of wishing trees, robes, and being with the Sangha! The Zoom ceremony aims to recapture the feeling of community, warmth, generosity and faith that we associate with the in-person Katina ceremony.
