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. In 2017 Taking Heart there were 1400 people who attended Open House Iftar dinners.

Please visit www.mnchurches.org to learn more about Taking Heart. Eleven of the Iftars have now passed or are filled. Register now for one or more of the remaining events! 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, Taking Heart Organizer: (412) 638-0680 (cell), revcbs11@gmail.com
