Recent Intervisitation Reports

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. We will post Friends’ stories and pictures on our website as a record of the travel amongst ourselves.

I appreciated the deep silence of worship, and how welcoming the Meeting was. It was wonderful to reconnect with Hollister and to meet new Friends.


Visit to Frankford Monthly Meeting

A caring and thoughtful meeting for worship. The day started with a well attended half-hour forum detailing volunteer efforts with prisoners. Meeting for worship ministered in a very caring way to a members issues with both thoughtful responses useful to all and a carefully selected bible verse or two. I almost finished counting attenders but stopped at 60. Following meeting there were refreshments and the forum continued for another half-hour.
