In an effort to serve our members and volunteers better, we are planning to change our Thursday Inspirational Service time to 7 – 8 p.m. beginning in April. This 1-hour format will include praying for others and practicing the healing technique. We plan to try this change for at least the Spring and Summer quarters and then assess whether to continue.  Our hope is that the time change will be helpful to those who prefer not to drive at night, and support more attendance given the earlier end-time and the shorter 1-hour format.

Along with the new 7 p.m. start time for the Thursday service, the Study Group start time will shift earlier to 6:15 p.m. beginning in April.

Thanks for your understanding as we consider this scheduling change. Feedback is always welcome through the Suggestion Box in the foyer or through the Contact form on our website.

The subject for today’s service is, “The Inner Meaning of Self-Realization.”

We will commemorate the mahasamadhi of Paramahansa Yogananda this Thursday, March 7 and the mahasamadhi of Swami Sri Yukteswar this Saturday, March 9. On each of these occasions we will have silent meditation from 7 – 7:40 p.m. followed by the commemorative service at 8 p.m. Please bring a flower and a donation in an envelope for these services.

In an effort to serve our members and volunteers better, we are planning to change our Thursday evening schedule to hold the Inspirational Service 7 – 8 p.m beginning in April. This 1-hour format will include praying for others and practicing the healing technique, whereas previously we held a separate Prayer Service after the main service. We plan to implement this change as a 6-month trial for the Spring and Summer quarters and assess whether it is working well.  Our hope is that the earlier end-time will be helpful to those who prefer not to drive at night, and those who have commitments Friday morning.

Along with the new 7 p.m. start time for the Thursday service, the Study Group start time will shift earlier to 6:15 p.m. beginning in April.
