Arch Street Meeting House was the starting point for the 2018 Interfaith Walk for Peace and Reconciliation on April 29, 2018. Monthly meeting members participated in the welcoming of hundreds of walkers from many different faith communities across Philadelphia and the region. This was the first time the walk began at a Friends meeting house.
