St. John’s Episcopal Church on French Street in Bangor is offering a Introduction to Islam course during Lent on Thursday evenings.
The course runs from March 14th to April 4th. The first three sessions will be led by a member of All Souls (Bill Voss) who has had significant experience in interfaith relations. He will be joined for the fourth session on April 4th by two educators from the Orono mosque who will talk about being a Muslim in the Bangor area and who will be willing to answer any and all questions people might have.
St. John’s is offering a light meal of soup and bread at 6 pm. The actual classes will start at 7:00, but in anticipation of late arrivals, we’re advertising the start as 6:45 for those not joining us for the meal. Sessions will have to start promptly at 7:00 in order for us to honor the ending time.
Please contact St. John’s to reserve the course, so they will have enough food and chairs. So we’re asking people to RSVP by calling the church office at 947-0156 or by email directly to Bill, whose address is on the flyer.
