Friends of all ages from throughout the yearly meeting and beyond are invited to Continuing Sessions where we gather for fellowship, worship, learning and to carry out the work of our yearly meeting.

  • Adults will be together in worship and for business, joined by all ages for all-together time.
  • Children, Middle Schoolers and Young Friends have their own, age-specific programs concurrent with Continuing Sessions.
  • Everyone is welcome, and all meetings should plan to send at least two members or attenders to carry the training and resources back to your meeting.
  • Children, Middle Schoolers and Young Friends must be registered in advance so that we can provide adequate support.
  • It’s very helpful if adults can register online ahead of time as well, but pre-registration for adults is not required. Registration opens in February.

This will be a day to gather all generations and across our diverse yearly meeting,  to foster deep connections among Friends in our spiritual community, and come away with clarity, hope, and action.

Adults and Children Registration Coming Soon

Middle Schoolers Registration Coming Soon

Young Friends (High School Age) Registration Coming Soon

Draft minutes from the November 4th Fall Continuing Sessions will be posted as soon as they become available.

Continuing Sessions are held twice a year, once at Arch Street Meeting House and once at another location outside Philadelphia. The Sessions Coordinating Committee together with Youth and Young Adult Program Staff have discerned that Fall Continuing Sessions will work best at Arch Street this fall. The Seeking Faithfulness Series will still be held at Arch Street in March 2018.

A deeply powerful day where Friends of all ages gather to do our most important work and deepen our relationships. Your presence will help make this a meaningful day!
