Media Advisory: Minister Hawkins to Attend Ramadan Prayer Service

The Honourable Al Hawkins, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour, will bring greetings at a prayer service during Ramadan at 1:00 p.m. tomorrow (Friday, May 18) at the Masjid-an-Noor Mosque, 430 Logy Bay Road, St. John’s.

Ramadan is a holy month of fasting, self-reflection, and charity for Muslim Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. Its conclusion is a celebration known as Eid al-Fitr on Friday, June 15. Recognizing these celebrations increases awareness of diversity in the province and helps foster a sense of community and belonging, a key commitment in The Way Forward on Immigration in Newfoundland and Labrador, the province’s collaborative immigration action plan.
