Religious and Cultural
The temple is the focus of all major religious and cultural events. We have a full calendar which is continually being refined as our capacity to hold them grows and our membership interest grows. The temple is open currently on Tuesday evenings for Hanuman Chalisa and on Sunday mornings for regular prayer services. Special pujas are held during major festivals. These include, among others, Sankranti, Ram Navami Puja, Maha Shivaratri, Holi, Krishnastami, Ganesh Puja and Diwali(Lakshmi Puja). These events provide a great opportunity for all of us to get together and to support the HRCC by becoming an active member. Usually the celebrations are followed by a sumptuous dinner that displays various Indian cuisines.
Our young generation and the young at heart need an avenue to explore the philosophical underpinnings of our faith.

We intend to provide these activities free of cost to our members, and nominal cost to others. Our main educational agenda items are to:
