Ramadan Iftar Dinner

Niagara Foundation and Turkish American Society of Missouri would like to invite you to our Ramadan Iftar (Fast-Breaking) Dinner, graciously hosted by St. Francis Xavier (College) Church.

Ramadan Iftar Dinners bring individuals from different religious and cultural communities together to learn about the significance of the month of Ramadan in Islam, engage in friendly table conversation, and break the fast with an Iftar dinner. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. We encourage participants to abstain from food and drink during the day prior to the Iftar Dinner to experience the holy month of Ramadan. Also please consider donating the funds you would have spent on food not eaten during fast. All donations go to the Turkish American Society of Missouri to help support a refugee family and show our hospitality to the newcomers.
