Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Oak Park Friends Meeting

We welcome you to experience Oak Park Friends Meeting.
We gather in worshipful silence with no planned program starting at 10:00am. Sometimes no words are spoken; sometimes a person is led to minister vocally. The meeting ends usually around 11:00am by shaking of hands initiated by our Clerk.

Children are always welcome at Oak Park Friends Meeting. Children stay with the worship circle if developmentally able; We provide child-friendly materials for quiet play.
