Full Event Details & documents 
A reminder: Our first PQM session in 2021 is January 24th, hosted by Central Philadelphia Monthly Meeting. You can still register !
 
The Philadelphia Quarterly Meeting is in an exciting place, ready for renewal and embracing opportunities.Quarterly Business starts at 1 PM, to welcome our new Quarter clerk, Kathleen Karhnak-Glasby. and a new Mentoring Clerk, Phil Anthony and other friends called to serve! Thank you.
 
One the best parts of Quarterly Meeting is getting to know other meetings and friends and learn how Spirit is moving among us.You will not want to miss CPMM's interactive presentation on ministries for racial healing, equity and justice within and beyond monthly meetings, and sharing afterwards. All are invited to join in CPMM’s First Day activities, hymn singing, worship and hospitality from 10 AM - 12:45 PM. Zoom links are included in your registration email.

As a Quarter we all have gone through so much in this past year - pandemic, economic loss, social and racial reckoning, stresses to family care, divisive politics, threats to democracy and we have shown resilience despite the trauma. We have chosen love and caring. The Quarter is reflecting and listening for Spirit to guide our work going forward. 
We will spend some time to reflect on the work of our last meeting in October 2020 (wow, before the election!) to aid us in considering how the Quarter may support Quaker life in Philadelphia in 2021 and beyond.
Thanks for Answering the Call! 
We are so Grateful and Excited for Friends sharing their Gifts!
We have a new Clerk and Mentoring Clerk, and Recording Clerk(s).
THANK YOU! 

We are looking for and welcome friends to serve as Treasurer(s), join the Recording team, and/ or are interested in aiding with communications and other opportunities!

Thank you Tim, for being a wonderful PQM Rep from West Philadelphia Friends Meeting. We've missed your good cheer and energy at Quarterly meetings since December, and are keeping you and your family in our hearts as you heal from a fall. We wish you a full recovery and hope to see you soon.
Do You Know Who Your Reps Are?
Each monthly meeting has at least one rep, and usually more, representatives that participate in the work of the Quarter.

What and Who is PQM?
The Philadelphia Quarter consists of every one in every monthly meeting in Philadelphia.
'Quarterly Meetings are vital to Quaker life. They strengthen meetings by joining Friends together in quarterly meetings “to support one another through worship and fellowship, and to consider matters of regional or common concern”.
