Nurturing faith and Quaker practice

Gathering Location

Niagara University

Niagara University, Niagara Falls, NY

Niagara University is about thirty miles northwest of Buffalo, New York and about twenty-five miles east of St. Catharines, Ontario.

The Niagara Frontier is rich in history. Home to over 1000 years of Seneca Nation history, several centuries of African American History, and to Quakers, who built the very first religious structure in Erie County.  The mighty Niagara Falls are located nearby in America’s oldest state park (1885). From the Niagara University campus, one can take the Discover Niagara free shuttle to over a dozen tourist sites including Niagara Falls, the Underground Railroad Center and Whirlpool State Park.
