Established in 2006, Virgin Mary Mosque in Hoppers Crossings has been the epicentre for Muslims young and old. Aptly named after a ‘righteous woman in her own right’ Maryam (Mary) is presented as an example to all humankind. A once close-knit community religious centre that focussed on providing local Muslims a place of worship and Islamic teachings, values, and practices, it has since developed into more than just a prayer room. With the exponential growth within Wyndham municipality, which brings along multicultural residents, Virgin Mary Mosque sees the opportunity to fill the gap of being a community centre, education centre and religious centre. We now proudly serve our community to meet their religious, education, social and counselling needs. Working collaboratively with multifaith and regulatory organisations like WIN (Wyndham Interfaith Network) and Wyndham City Council and Victoria Police, Virgin Mary Mosque is on its way to be the centre for the entire community.
