End Date/Time:

After the success of our “Secure the Future” Youth Conference last June, we held another much-anticipated one-day conference about marriage in the South Conference Room of the Noor Islamic Cultural Center. We secured some great speakers and professionals to discuss topics like pre-marital counseling, family therapy, and domestic violence. There was also a fun, engaging session featuring strong couples from our community. We invited couples, singles, young adults, parents, and the entire community (age 17+) to learn more about fostering healthy marriages. See the program below for more details.
