Interim Meeting

benches-longInterim Meeting conducts the business of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting between annual sessions.

The basic structure, functions, and responsibilities of Interim Meeting are outlined in Faith and Practice.  Meetings are generally held on the second Saturday of January, February, April, May, October and November at the Arch Street Meeting House.  However, schedule changes may occur, especially as the yearly meeting transitions to Continuing Sessions.
