News & Announcements
Arch Street Meeting House will be the starting point for the 2018 Interfaith Walk for Peace and Reconciliation on April 29, 2018. Monthly meeting members are participating in the welcoming of hundreds of walkers from many different faith communities across Philadelphia and the region. This is the first time the walk is beginning at a Friends meeting house. Participants will gather in the West Room between 1:30 and 1:45 pm for a 2:00pm start.
This is a series of fun events that bring Friends—and friends of Friends—together for fellowship, wine and cheese, and networking.
All but the farm event will be held at 7:00 PM at the Arch Street Meetinghouse 4th and Arch Streets, Philadelphia, PA (free parking).
IN CASE OF SNOW – PYM CLOSES WHEN THE PHILADELPHIA SCHOOL DISTRICT CLOSES
There is no charge to attend but an RSVP is encouraged, so we can plan refreshments, and offer directions.
Several times over the last few months, meeting members and attenders cooked dinner at Old First Reformed UCC"s social hall. Since 1984, the church sponsors a men's shelter during the winter months. For several years, a group of MMFP volunteers have taken on the responsibility of shopping and cooking for a dinner for the men's evening meal. More dates are on the "events" tab.
Thanks to Ed and Katie for organizing this worthwhile activity, and to all those who have shown up to cook and spend time at the shelter!
Members of the meeting take care of the rose garden on the meetinghouse grounds. (Other volunteers garden in the front area.) The rose garden has developed and matured into a multicolored haven for bees and other beneficial insects, as well as providing an attractive greeting area to those who enter from the parking lot or 4th St. entrances.
