It’s been a heavy start to the year.
In the face of a pandemic, we’ve been reminded of our own fragility. As a human family, we have found ourselves leaning on one another and ensuring we work together for the sake of the collective.
With Ramadan close approaching with no sense of normalcy, we want to help you make the best of this special month. We’ve put together a list of resources and initiatives to help get your Ramadan Ready with us!
May these blessed days be a means for us to connect with our Lord and our community, and to share together in gratitude.
