Visit a PYM Monthly Meeting!

Our General Secretary has invited all Friends in Philadelphia Yearly Meeting to visit two meetings each year as a way to know one another better and experience the breadth and diversity of our faith community.   We also invite you to share a snapshot report of your experience after each visit, using the form below.  We will post Friends’ stories and pictures on our website as a record of the travel amongst ourselves.

Choose a meeting that is a neighbor or very far away. Consider traveling with a friend. Try a meeting that is in a city or way out in the country. Visit a very large or very small meeting. Try one because you like its name or because it’s in a place you have never been. We have so many meetings to choose from!
