Ministry & Care

“Since the religion of the Society of Friends is based on an inward experience, deeper than intellectual concepts, it cannot be taught in the same way that subjects are taught in school.” — H. Brinton, Guide to Quaker Practice.


Ministry & Care Resource Friends help our community thrive by providing support in the areas of Quaker ministry, worship, eldership, pastoral care, and care for the aging. Through the teaching ministry, Resource Friends in Ministry & Care offer informational tools and spirit-led experiential opportunities to facilitate learning. They provide support in the area of spirituality and aging.  Meeting retreats and workshops address topics including meaningful retirement, emotional care, physical health, as well as aging at home, memory loss & dementia, and death & dying.
