March 26, 2017 was the official inauguration of the building site for MNN’s Masjid/Islamic Centre. The event was held at the future building site of the Islamic Centre at 3520 Odyssey Drive in the West Mississauga Churchill Meadows neighbourhood, and brought many locals and families out to celebrate the much awaited occasion. The Councillor for Ward 10 Sue McFadden came out as well to celebrate with the Muslim community the inaugural.
MP Iqra Khalid also joined the occasion site to celebrate alongside Sue and the rest of the Muslim community. MNN’s Islamic Centre will allow for numerous people and their families to come and pray, participate in activities, learn about their faith and serve as a hub for people to come and spend their time. The Islamic Centre will be built in a densely populated area which will be convenient for all Muslim’s living in the area.
Muslim Neighbour Nexus is a registered charitable organisation serving the religious Islamic needs of the Churchill Meadows and Lisgar Communities of Mississauga – a big area constituting a whole city ward (Ward 10), where the Muslim population is about 10,000.
