Xavier Interfaith Project & related Part-time Paid Work

Interfaith Project:
Xavier University is looking for 10 young Muslim professionals (ages 21-30+) to come together with other faith professionals (10 Jewish and 10 Christian) for 3 sessions

The first of these sessions is going to be held at Xavier on 8/21 and is going to be a study on the value and importance of lifelong study in these three traditions. In the following three sessions (Sept 25, Oct 23, Nov 20) we'll be studying on the environment, community responsibility and building a life (dating, married, having kids). These sessions will be at 3 different locations that represent these 3 religions.

Part-time Paid Interfaith Project Work: 
Xavier University with the Brueggeman Center is looking for someone in the Muslim Community to work with the Interfaith Project coordinators (Jordy Cohen and Judie Kuhlman) for a few hours every week on the  www.InterfaithCincy.orgwebsite. 
Please contact Shabana Shakir Ahmed if you are interested:

Islamic Center In The News

Now more than ever the American Muslim community has to take control of their own narrative and must engage through making community news accessible, provide comments, and discussions on the stories relevant to our community. We have been blessed with wide and positive coverage of the Center.  When there is positive coverage we must all give feedback and acknowledge and appreciate the work of the media. Please take a few minutes to review the media links and give positive feedback where you feel comfortable.
