Ordination Ceremony For Kodo and Bansho

June 20, 2021

Sunday June 20th 10am - 12ish

Dear Sangha and Friends,
On Sunday, June 20th, 2021, Nancy Kodo Conover and Patrick Bansho Green will receive Tokudo (priest ordination) at Great Vow Zen Monastery.  You are invited to attend!
Priest Ordination means that Kodo and Bansho are ready to help anyone with religious support for the rituals of their life transitions: such as blessings, funerals, visiting the ill and weddings.
Kodo and Bansho have faith in the teachings and practice of the BuddhaDharma, and are willing to step forward to help hold the container of practice for the whole community. They will be able to represent our lineage as religious professionals to the national and international Buddhist community.
Kodo and Bansho are beloved long-time members of ZCO and have served our community in many capacities, this is the next evolution of their service.
Please RSVP by emailing registrar@zendust.org or calling (503) 728-0654 and leaving a message so we can make enough food for a delicious celebratory lunch.  We hope you will join us at Great Vow to welcome and acknowledge our new priests!
