All Souls’ Day

Honor Your Loved Ones on All Souls’ Day

All Souls’ Day is a day when we pray for our loved ones who have died. Primarily a Catholic tradition, All Souls’ Day is now commonly recognized by the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Anglican church and a few other Protestant denominations. Catholics not only pray for all souls, but in particular the souls of those who are caught in purgatory undergoing a process of purification before entering heaven.

Come out to Valley of the Temples Memorial Park to commemorate this day by placing the names of your loved ones on our prayer board. Complimentary refreshments will be served and drawings and giveaways will be held throughout the day.

Call us for more information: 808-800-2662 or see the All Souls’ Day flyer.

Robyn Busfield – Book Signing

About the Author, Robyn Busfield’s

Her first book, “It’s Time to get Selfish,” published in 2006, was geared toward a better understanding of the Divine Wisdom within each one of us. Robyn offers the reader an ability to gain clear discernment in the difference between the voice of Love and the voice of fear. She also discusses how we can wisely infuse the Law of Attraction into our life while connecting deeply with this Higher Self within. The “selfish” concept leans toward the understanding that knowing intimately and working with our “Higher Self” benefits those around us; we fulfill our own needs and fill our own cup with happiness, which naturally overflows and extends to our loved ones.Where: Byodo-In Temple
