HISTORIC MEETING IN THE MARIA REGINA ROOM - WEDNESDAY, JULY 8th 2015
AFTER THE IFTAR
Small talk after the Iftar dinner....a great meal prepared by friends from the TCC Goksel Guven, Director of the TCC in Deer Park....after lively discussion & dinner.
On Wednesday, July 8th, members of the Roundtable Committee hosted in the Maria Regina Room
5 leaders from the Turkish Cultural Center. The purpose of the meeting was to share an Iftar Dinner,
just as the entire OLMM Parish did last summer, on July 25th, 2014, at the Parish Hall. This year's
dinner and meeting was all about getting better acquainted by discussing some of the vital, common
values that are shared by Islam and Christianity--including compassion and forgiveness.
This was also a planning meeting to discuss the agenda of a much larger forum that
everyone from our parish community will be invited to attend in mid-October.
STAY TUNED!!! Members of the Roundtable Committee will be sharing much more information
about this exciting event in the months ahead.
