Christmas Gathering!
Light to Illuminate Our Path
Drop off: Saturday, December 18, 9-10am
Pick up: Sunday, December 19, 1:00pm
Young Friends will gather at Arch Street Meetinghouse to celebrate the holiday season and look forward to the paths ahead for us as individuals and a community. How can the Light within and around us illuminate our way? Program includes a climate justice workshop, team-building activities, worship sharing, and time for committees to meet!


We are asking that participants be vaccinated.
Everyone needs aHealth/Permission form!The new form includes a question asking about COVID-19 vaccination. This is not required information, but will help us in the event that we needed to do contact tracing.
Only staff will touch and distribute food; they will wear masks and gloves.
We will follow the "two out of three rule" -- Friends need to be masked or distanced when outdoors, and masked+distanced when indoors. (Masks will be required indoors.)


We have a full day and evening planned for Saturday, so if you don't want to or cannot sleep over, please don't feel like you have to! Friends can stay through the evening and then head home, as needed.
Our sleeping arrangements will include safely spreading out around a big meetinghouse. ​
Arch Street Meeting House is in Philadelphia, and accessible by car (there is free parking) and public transportation.
If you are interested in carpooling (please consider your Covid-safety comfort) reach out to Melinda at


Cost is $40 but no Young Friend should let cost be in the way -- there are specific scholarships set up for Young Friends!
Young Friends will also receive $5 spending money during the event, as is our practice -- this is all you need!
