The Ecumenical/Multi-Faith Unit Group and the Bishop of New Westminster have coordinated a letter of greeting to local Muslim communities on Mawlid, the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad. This year Mawlid is celebrated on October 8.

You can learn about this celebration here and why it is an important day in the faith tradition of our Muslim neighbours.

As followers of Christ we take seriously Jesus' call to walk in peace with one another. If you have a Muslim friend, neighbour, co-worker, family member, be sure to share with them this letter of greeting and the peace Christ has given you.
