Community Iftar Dinner

In a collaborative attempt to build stronger bridges across faiths and non-faith communities, we are excited to invite you to a community Iftar dinner. A night to meet people from around the world, over a simple shared meal.

Iftar is the name for a community dinner held daily after sunset to mark the end of a day of fasting. Ramadan, the ninth month in the Muslim calendar, is a special time for the Muslim community. During the month of Ramadan, Muslims worldwide fast from dawn to sunset to achieve greater self-discipline, self-purification, and compassion for those less fortunate. 

Join us to share a meal on Saturday 3 June at the Griffith Multi-faith Centre. This event is open to people of all walks of life. People of all faiths and no faith are encouraged to participate. 

This event is co-organised by the Romero Centre for Asylum Seekers (Mercy Community Services), Cr Jonathan Sri of the Gabba Ward office and Refugees Welcome Australia.

Free admission. Gold coin donations appreciated on the day.
