UPDATE: Cancellation of In-Person New Year’s Events
Cancellation of In-Person Events
We regret to inform you that the temple has decided to cancel in-person celebrations on Friday, January 1st, Saturday, January 2nd, and Sunday, January 3rd. The live streaming of archana and maharathi for Lord Venkateshwara will take place as announced on December 31, 2020 (Thursday) at midnight and January 1st (Friday) at 6:30 pm.
Please go to www.malibuhindutemple.org to watch the live stream program. We request that you make donations by clicking the icon entitled “Malibu Hindu Temple Coronavirus Relief Fund.” We will automatically receive the names of the donors, and we will announce your names in the sanctum sanctorum and offer special prayers immediately following the live streaming program on both December 31st and January 1st.
COVID-19 Protocol Activated
One or more people who have been on the temple premises have either tested positive for COVID-19 or have been in contact with people who have tested positive for COVID-19. In light of this, we must cancel in-person activities at our temple for the time being. We hope that you will understand the diligence and deliberate care with which this decision was made. We are disappointed that we have to take this action despite making all arrangements for your in-person worship services.
Please contact all of your friends, and inform them of the recent developments. All other prior announcements about in-person celebrations must be disregarded.
We wish you all a very happy new year. Do not forget to follow our live stream events.
Nadadur S. Kumar
General Counsel and Chief Administrative Officer
