This Sunday is Open Mosque Day and The Islamic Council of Victoria is inviting you to attend one of the many mosques taking part in the annual state-wide mosque open day this year.
There are two participating mosques in Manningham and they are at the UMMA Centre and Benevolence Australia, both located in Doncaster East.
Mosques commonly serve as locations for prayer, Ramadan vigils, funeral services, Sufi ceremonies, marriage and business agreements, alms collection and distribution, as well as homeless shelters. They are places which are essential to the life of the Muslim community.
Victorian Mosque Open Day 2021 is to be held this Sunday 14 March between 10.00am to 4.00pm at various participating mosques around the state, as part of Cultural Diversity Week and Harmony Day.
Cultural Diversity Week (21 March to 28 March) and Harmony Day (21 March) are Victoria’s largest multicultural celebrations, featuring week-long programs of festivals and events in metropolitan and regional areas.
The UMMA Centre is located at 72 George St, Doncaster East and Benevolence Australia can be found at 125 George St, Doncaster East.
