Dear Friends,

We are very excited to pass along the attached announcement. On Sunday, February 24, Imam Hendi, a respected Muslim cleric whom we have been fortunate to meet and hear speak on several occasions, is giving a presentation at St. Patrick's in Cumberland. The Imam has been a world leader in bridging the divide between the three Abrahamic religions as well as between the east and west. We want to encourage your attendance and ask that you pass this announcement along to your friends and contacts in the area.
