Annual Sessions

Any fundamental decisions regarding the structure, programs, and witness of the yearly meeting are made by the yearly meeting in annual or continuing sessions. All members of its constituent Friends meetings are also members of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends. They are encouraged to attend the annual, continuing and other sessions of yearly meeting and participate in worship, fellowship, and decision-making with other members of the yearly meeting. Yearly meeting is enhanced when as many members as possible attend sessions since this assures a larger pool of wisdom and insight; such participation is also beneficial for the members and their Friends meetings.
