Dear Members and Friends,

As previously announced, Brother Kalyanananda and Br. Troy from SRF Mother Center will be visiting our Houston Center from Thursday, December 17 to Sunday, December 20 to conduct the all-day Christmas Meditation.

The agenda for the Christmas Monastic Visit Weekend has now been finalized and is available by clicking here

On Friday, December 18, we will be organizing an outing with Brother Kalyanananda & Br. Troy to visit the Battleship of Texas Historic Site and the San Jacinto Monument.

We plan to meet at the Chapel around 8:30am on Friday, December 18  and will depart sharply at 9:00am. The entrance fee is $6 per person. We will have a picnic on the grounds after the site tour around Noon.  Everyone is encouraged to bring their own brown bag lunch.

If you are interested in joining us for this outing with the Monastics, please fill out the sign-up form located in the chapel foyer so we can have the accurate head count to purchase group tickets in advance. If you have any questions about this outing, please contact Chetan Patel by emailing him at chetancpatel@hotmail.com.
