Namaste All - 

Based on the Panchang with local time in Houston, Chauth Tithi falls on November 3rd. This is why Karwa Chaut puja will be held on Tuesday, November 3rd at HWS. 

In an effort to maintain social distancing, we will ask everyone to sit in smaller circles of 5-6 only.

Please remember to bring your masks and gloves as thalis will be passed during the puja.  

We will go Live on Facebook at the 4:50pm Puja for those who cannot attend in person.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the puja tomorrow!
