Everyone is Welcome at Wat Saddhadhamma
At Wat Saddhadhamma, we believe in community and family and invite you to come and celebrate the teachings of Buddhism with us. Each week, we have traditional prayer ceremonies on Sunday.

Schedule of Events
SART THAI is observed by devoted families to dedicate merit and honors to their deceased ancestors. Sart Thai is a time to remember those relatives with prayers, Buddhist rituals, and merit making on their behalf.
The word Sart is derived from the Indian word meaning autumn or the fall of the season. Normally, the Sart Thai festival falls on the end of the tenth lunar month, usually some time during September.
A specialty during the Sart Thai festival is Krayasart which is a sweet dessert, prepared from rice, peanuts, sesame seeds and sugar or honey. Usually, on this day, Thai people offer Krayasart to the monks in the temple and also offer the sweet to their relatives, friends, and neighbors as a sign of respect.
