Like the rest of UMaine, the Wilson Center has had a busy week!
- Thank you to all who attended the interfaith luncheon on Creation Stories on monday.
- Thank you to all who joined our celebration of graduates and the Interfaith Leadership Institute delegation at our final Wednesday dinner.
- Thank you to Jewish friends and colleagues for the privilege of joining in the Holocaust Day of Remembrance yesterday.
We wish Muslim friends, family, and colleagues well as Ramadan begins. Muslims around the globe will be fasting the month of Ramadan, that falls on the 9th month on the lunar calendar. It is expected to start this Sunday or Monday depending on the sighting of the moon. It is a month of fasting, worship, and reflection. For those who are not familiar with Ramadan and want to learn more, you can visit this link: https://www.whyislam.org/brochures/ramadan/
Next Wednesday, 2-3:30 pm, the Wilson Center is honored to host “With-Standing: Exploring Immigration and Belonging in Maine,” sponsored by the Department of Communication and Journalism and the Maine Multicultural Center. The presentation is free and open to the public; see the attached flier for more information.
To all who are preparing for finals next week, we wish you well!
Mark your calendars for this event coming in September 2019
