Victoria mosque opens doors to Unitarians after crash damages church

Members of the Victoria Islamic Center know what it’s like to lose a place of worship. “We welcome you. This is your place,” Abe Ajrami, treasurer for the Islamic Center, said Sunday morning to a group of about 30 Unitarian Universalists. Their church rendered unserviceable by a bizarre and unfortunate car crash days earlier, members of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Victoria found themselves suddenly without a place to have their Sunday service.

But Sunday’s service continued as planned at an auxiliary building on the Islamic center property, where the mosque destroyed by arson in January 2017 remains under reconstruction. After that fire, representatives of various Victoria religious groups, including the Victoria Unitarian Universalists, offered Islamic center members the keys to their places of worship. Sunday, mosque members passed that generosity on. “You can use this place as long as you want – as many Sundays as you wish,” Ajrami said. “When you’re finished, just turn out the lights.”

Church members have had services in the house and According to the Unitarian Universalist website, the group explores humanity and spirituality without placing restrictions on religions, beliefs and perspectives.
