Members of the local Interfaith Council, men and women of different colors and creeds, offered their support for the construction of a mosque in Temecula during a lecture Tuesday night at the city's recreation center.

"I believe it will be a blessing," said Larry Slusser, a Mormon who served as the host of the presentation that was attended by about 200 people.

The mosque, a 25,000-square-foot house of worship to be constructed in two phases, is being proposed for land in Nicolas Valley by the Islamic Center of Temecula Valley, a congregation of area families that has been meeting in a business park on the west side of town.
