Park(ing) Day comes to Friends Center
For the first time, Friends Center participated in Park(ing) Day on 9/16/2016. Park(ing) Day is an international event when parking spaces are turned into “parklets” or mini-parks for the day. Friends Council on Education, Friends Association for Higher Education, and Friends Center collaborated to bring a parklet to 15th Street between Cherry and Race Streets. Read about it here.
A Quaker Space for Our Time
A recent issue of Friends Journal focused on the theme, “Quaker Spaces.” Friends Center’s executive director wrote a feature article about Friends Center as a Quaker space for our time.
COME WORSHIP WITH QUAKERS!
The Central Philadelphia Monthly Meeting of Friends (Quakers) welcomes you to participate in this unique, unprogrammed form of service. We worship by gathering and silently waiting for the Spirit to guide us.
