Juya Service and Memorial Service for the victims of the Oct 1st Las Vegas Incident | Sun. Nov. 12, 2017

Dear Members and Friends;

We hope all is well with you and your families.
As reported via media, California is being ravaged by many brush fires and many homes have been lost. We hope neither you nor your family has been affected by these tragic fires.

Also, we believe that everyone was saddened by the horrible incident in Las Vegas, Nevada, on October 1, 2017. Las Vegas is a place where we, the Southern California residents, are familiar with and some of our temple members/families are living in Las Vegas. All the news of the incident is devastating and many SoCal residents/families became victims of it. We would like to extend our condolences to those who lost their lives in the incident and their families.

Upon this, we wish to announce that we will observe a memorial service for those who lost their lives in this Las Vegas incident during Juya Service, which is scheduled for Sunday, November 12, 2017, from 10:30 am. Please attend this service with your family and friends and offer incense for those affected by this terrible event.
