Kamloops Buddhist Temple


All temple services and activities are cancelled until further notice.

At the temple, safety is first on our minds and so all group services and activities have been cancelled and the temple will remain closed for the remainder of this year.

We were able to complete the spring chow mein sale in three sessions at the end of June and beginning of July using COVID rules. This proved to be very successful. This income will help with the temple finances for a while.

The Board of Directors continue to meet virtually every month to review our situation. Please contact us with any concerns.
Please take good care of yourselves and each other.

Please stay healthy and take care.

In Gassho, 

Board of Directors
