On Monday, Feb. 9, 2015, three La Salle Students – Liana Irizarry, Conor Coleman and Jessica Seamon – of the Leadership and Global Understanding (LGU) program were assigned to go to the Masjidullah Mosque.
The Mosque is located in the West Oak Lane section of Philadelphia. It sits at the corner of the three-way intersection of Limekiln Pike, E. Washington Lane and 74th Ave. Across the street sits the West Oak Lane Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia. Further down the street is a U Haul Dealer and a Sunoco gas station.
On Monday, Feb. 9, 2015, Irizarry, Coleman, and Seamon met with one of Masjidullah’s Board of Trustee members, Mike Rashid to discuss their goals they have with the Mosque for the upcoming weeks. As of right now, the students want to become involved in the Masjidullah community on a personal level. In other words, they want to get to know individuals as themselves outside of the Mosque. They will eventually work with the Mosque on a food drive.
They will meet again with a couple of other people of the Masjidullah administration this upcoming week before putting their goals into action.
