Prayers Suspended Until Further Notice

Islamic Centre of Cambridge has suspended daily congregational prayers at the Jami Mosque and will not hold the weekly Friday prayer until further notice. 

We apologize for the inconvenience this causes our congregants; however, this was a necessary measure to ensure the safety and well-being of our congregation.  We urge the community to continue to check public health’s website for information as it is updated regularly:

Canada Emergency Response Benefit
