What's New?

As we commemorate Eid al-Fitr in the year 1445 of the Islamic calendar, let us embrace the timeless teachings of faith, gratitude, and unity that define this sacred festival. May Eid al-Fitr serve as a source of inspiration for Muslims worldwide to strive for spiritual growth, cultivate gratitude, and extend compassion to all members of the human family. In the spirit of Eid al-Fitr, let us reaffirm our commitment to building a more compassionate, inclusive, and harmonious world for generations to come. Eid Mubarak!

This marks the beginning of the month of Dhul Hijjah, the twelfth and final month of the Islamic lunar calendar. Dhul Hijjah is a sacred month for Muslims, as it contains the days of Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, and the days of 'Eid al-Adha, the festival of sacrifice.

Salam Brothers, Afgan sisters and brothers are organizing this event with help from Christian friends who helped them to settle in Eugene. They celebrate world refugee day and this year they embrace Afgan culture with showcasing their food, music and their journey to the US. Please make sure to sign up if you are planning to experience and celebrate Afgan culture. Thank you
