May-June 2018: Taking Heart Open Houses

Taking Heart Open Houses – 2018

Taking Heart Open Houses is a long-running program coordinated by the Minnesota Council of Churches (MCC) and the Muslim American Society of Minnesota (MAS-MN) to bring Christians and members of other faith communities together with Muslims for food and conversation during Ramadan. Minnesota mosques and Islamic community centers welcome their non-Muslim neighbors for a traditional Iftar, inviting a time of encounter and learning. Growing in popularity, Taking Heart saw more than 1100 non-Muslims attend Open House Iftar dinners in 2017.

Please visit to learn more about Taking Heart. Registration is now open so you can sign up for one or more events. Currently there are twenty Iftars from which to choose; as more mosques sign up to host their gatherings will be added to the registration page.

Bring a friend and learn more about your Muslim neighbors! These events are free and open to the public.

If you have any questions, please contact the Rev. Cynthia Bronson Sweigert at (412) 638-0680 (cell) or
