Muslim Mimbar Unveiling – Photo by James Howells

This year the Muslim community at RMCC initiated a project to create a mimbar which is the place where the Imam delivers the sermon during the Friday prayer service. It is what the Prophet Muhammad used during his sermons and represents the authority of the Imam over the community. Its unveiling was a true milestone and this item would remain in the RMCC Multi Faith Space as a permanent fixture to remind Muslim students and staff of the sacred and the importance we as an institution place on facilitating religious expression and practice.

Passover Meet-and Greet & Dinner

To acknowledge the Jewish festival of Passover, the RMCC padres  reached out to the Jewish community and canvassed for Jewish cadets. The result was a well attended meet and greet/fellowship on the 21st April with key Jewish leaders in Kingston, followed by a community Passover dinner on Friday the 22nd.

The intent was to connect the OCdts with the local community to strengthen their faith identity and resiliency in this institution.
