The schedule for noon is:
12:40- Announcements & Class
The evening schedule is:
4:45- Deity Bathing Ceremony
7:00- Children's song, Dramatic recitation of Lord Caitanya's eight verses and
Reading from the "Caitanya Bhagavat"
The Hattiesburg Gujarati Association will simultaneously be celebrating Holi or the Festival of Colors on the temple grounds. They will also have a Holika Bonfire to celebrate the conquest of good over evil; and will prepare prasadam. Including a delicious temple feast there will be plenty for everyone.
Please come and have a good time. Hare Krishna !
