Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

News & Announcements

In the tradition of the Religious Society of Friends for more than three hundred and fifty years, Oread Friends express their concern for peace and justice in a variety of ways, including living with simplicity and integrity, conscientious objection to war and other forms of violence, the use of appropriate technology, care of the environment, acknowledging the fundamental equality of all people, and supporting the civil and cultural rights of every human being.
