Established in 1945, the Spokane Buddhist Temple holds weekly services on Sunday mornings at 10:30 am, following the tradition of Japanese Shin Buddhism. Our Sangha Services are hosted by Reverend Opel and Minister’s Assistants, with help from other members of our Sangha. Not having a resident minister of our own, we invite a guest minister to come and speak throughout the year for Buddhist Holidays. Additionally, we are an all-volunteer temple and welcome your participation in our weekly services and activities.
In addition to holding services, we usually have a food bazaar in the spring and fall, called Ramen Fest and Teriyaki Fest, and an Obon Festival in July or August, MochiFest at New Year’s plus other fundraisers. Please see our Calendar and Facebook page for more information about these special events.
Our temple has a Japanese heritage, but all services are in English and most of our Sangha members are non-Japanese. We welcome all, regardless of belief, heritage, race, gender, sexual orientation, or anything else. Please join us for our next service – or call, email, or connect with us on Facebook!
