Southern Illinois Quaker Meeting
Effective December, 2016, our meeting has relocated to the Dayemi Family Center, 214 E Jackson St, Carbondale, IL 62901. This building has a great history, and is currently a schoolhouse with enclosed playground, owned and operated by the Dayemi Tariqat. We hold our worship and meetings in the main room, using a back room for First Day School when weather prevents enjoying the outdoors.
The Southern Illinois Quakers have a long history of supporting its Friends who are led into service beyond the meeting.

8/20 Worship CANCELLED: location is ground zero for eclipse festivities
Our Small Meeting Will Be Eclipsed in 2017 and 2024
The news for Carbondale is exciting: we're located within a couple of seconds of longest duration for the historic total solar eclipse due to occur Monday, August 21, 2017. NASA is teaming up with Southern Illinois University to create a major observation hub here on campus. Tens of thousands of visitors are expected in our rural college town. And we'll be right under another one in April of 2024.
