Muslim prayers every Friday in Belgian Church

While their mosque is being restored, Muslims are being the use of St Lambert in Jumme. Every Friday, the Cross is removed, prayer mats laid and images hidden.

Henri Remy, the 89 year old parish priest rejoices in the dialogue in the spirit of the Council, "We pray to the same God, each in their own way", he says with emphasis.

Muslims believe once a building has been used for their prayers that they retain the right of use for ever.
