Circle of Sacred Knowledge

On the last Friday of each month Dr. Timothy Gianotti will be hosting an open study session devoted to traditional texts of spiritual formation and sacred knowledge. This will take place in the upstairs library/classroom space of the Noor Cultural Centre from Noon until 1:00 pm, concluding well before the congregational (jum'ah) prayer service. While the texts and topics will come from the Islamic spiritual tradition, people from all faiths are invited to participate and stay for the Friday (jum'ah) prayer service which begins at 1:20 pm.

The first three session dates are: Friday October 31, Friday November 28 and Friday January 30, 2009. Time: Noon to 1 PM

We will continue to update this site. For more information email us here.
