A historic marker dedication took place on September 24, 2020, at the Cox-Phillips-Mitchell House at 1655 Old Wilmington Rd. This property, located north of the meetinghouse, is possibly Hockessin’s oldest building (built 1726) and is where Hockessin Friends Meeting got its start (in 1730), as the house was the location of meeting for worship before the meetinghouse was built. You can learn more about the house and its history here:

An ad-hoc committee met on 6/11, 6/18, and 6/25 to develop safe plans for a gradual re-opening of the Meetinghouse for in-person worship. Guidelines provided by the State of Delaware, “Guidance for Houses of Worship,” (6/2/20) and Philadelphia Yearly Meeting’s “Advices & Queries for Possibly Reopening Your Meeting House or Church,” (5/28/20) were considered.

“Still being able to attend Meeting for Worship, daily walks as Spring busts out all over, dropping off small bouquets and baked goods to neighbors, text chats with my lunch crew, and sewing masks and mailing them to friends and family are some of the activities that keep me going through all of this.”—Juliana Forbes

During our Fourth Month business meeting (on 4/5), we decided that the meetinghouse will not be open for meeting for worship until further notice. Alternatively, Friends may participate in our Zoom meetings for worship First Days at 10:45. Our Zoom Meeting ID is 863-908-9345; the Password is 1. Our link for Zoom Meetings for Worship and Meeting for Business is https://zoom.us/j/8639089345?pwd=ak1XbmprdFBUQnRZOWszWU91VHdyUT09.
