The end of Vassa, Pavarana Day, is on the 5th October, and thus begins the Kathina season for all Theravada monasteries.
Santi’s Kathina celebrations will happen on Sunday 22nd October.
This year, the Kathina ceremony and robe offering will be led by the Cambodian community from Canley Vale, and all are welcome to join in and also make offerings to the Sangha on this special day in the Buddhist calendar.
