    Dear Devotees,
    We have mailed the tax receipts for 2018 on February 12, 2019.  We expect that you should have it in few days.
    If you do not receive the receipts, please let us know by replying to this email and also by incorporating your mailing address. The reason for not receiving the receipt might be that we do not have your right address.
    Thank you again for your continuous support!

    Board of Directors


    This is the time of the year that we request our devotees to sign up for Sunday hosting for the upcoming year. But first, let us allow us to express our gratitude to you and also to share the pride that we feel as Board of Directors.

     As many of you know, Prasad served every Sunday after the Arati has been an integral part of our Temple for the last 33 years, which upholds a unique tradition and is very popular among devotees. Food from various regions of India and other countries is served with great devotion that truly reflects the richness and varieties of the food that our community is endowed with. This Prasad arrangement has also provided us with the opportunity to socialize and exchange our experiences while sharing food. We feel proud of this tradition.

    This program has been successful only because of your continuous and unwavering support of Sunday-hosting. We are sincerely thankful to you for your support. And we would like to maintain this practice of sharing Prasad.

    To manage it better so that no family is deprived of getting the hosting date they want and no Sundays remain without a host, we request you to sign up for Sunday hosting at your earliest convenience. We just require 52 volunteer families (either sole or in groups) from different regions to continue the tradition.  The hosting can be on any occasion such as birthday, anniversary or regional festival. Prasad should be very simple and of course, we know, it will be authentic.

     The Board of Directors


    If you would like to host or sponsor any events or need more information, please contact the Manager at 613-822-1531 or visit www.hindutemple.ca.
