Merit-Making Ceremony for the Songkran Festival

The Board of Directors for Wat Thai DC has approved a merit-making ceremony for the Songkran festival of Sunday, April 10, 2022, recognizing that federal, state, and local governments have relaxed their COVID-19 policies in light of the improving public health situation. However, we urge the member of the Wat Thai DC community to protect themselves and take all necessary precautions when in public places like the temple The April 10 ceremony will be the first merit-making ceremony held for Songkran Day in two years. The Board of Directors has also decided that because of the ongoing public health situation and the safety of the community, only the traditional religious ceremonies like making offerings to the monks, gilding Luang Por Dam, and chanting will be held this year, but other activities like food stalls, cultural performances, and the Nang Songkran parade will not.
