Chester River Friends Meeting

Visit to: Chester River Friends Meeting

Southern Quarter

This was my first visit to a meeting in Maryland! I travelled to Chester River Friends Meeting to attend Southern Quarterly Meeting. The meeting house is just lovely – very unique structure with an interesting history. There were refreshments before Meeting for Worship, a potluck afterwards, and then Meeting for Business. A new Friend from Southern Quarter (who I just …

Visit to: State College Meeting!

Upper Susquehanna Quarter

I had a wonderful visit to State College Meeting! I arrived early enough to attend Meeting for Business, stayed for Meeting for Worship, and then enjoyed a delicious potluck meal.

State College has such warm and welcoming Friends! — Melissa Rycroft (Pennsdale Meeting), April 10, …

Visit to: Merion Monthly Meeting

Haverford Quarter

I’ve wanted to visit PYM’s oldest meetinghouse ever since Merion Meeting was featured in the Silent Witness exhibit. On this very cold, windy morning it was great to connect with people I know from their work at Arch Street Meeting House, as well as a former Newtown Meeting Friend. A wonderful visit. — Bill Heinemann (Newtown Monthly Meeting)

My first visit here, after a few failed attempts to get day and time right. Met in the house, and the meeting was closed for winter. Got to see the worship space, and find it totally wonderful. Cannot go again until the weather is better or it is not dark in the evenings, but am anxious to see space and …

Not exactly sure of date; sometime in January I believe Paul says it is his favorite meeting so far, Frankford is second. Lovely fire and food, messages, and gathered worship. Such dear and special friends and memories here for me. — Nancy Adams (Frankford Monthly Meeting). Accompanied by: Paul Kramer
