Friends General Conference

Nurturing faith and Quaker practice

Cannon Valley Friends Meeting

Cannon Valley Friends Meeting is an unprogrammed meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, also known as Quakers.  We are located in Northfield, MN, about 35 miles south of Minneapolis/St. Paul.  

What's New

Northern Yearly Meeting's Annual Session for 2015 is scheduled for May 22-25 at the Wisconsin Lions Camp in Rosholt, WI.  This year's theme is "Climate Change: Turning Awareness into Action."  Registration should be postmarked by May 1st to avoid a late registration penalty.


Mike Resman will be coming to lead us in a one day retreat on spiritual nurture on Saturday, May 16th, at the Meetinghouse (512 Washington St., Northfield).  Planning is still taking place, but at this point we expect to begin at 10 a.m. with worship sharing on the topic of our spiritual lives, take a break for lunch, and spend the afternoon working on forming ongoing spiritual nurture groups.  Everyone is welcome to attend, whether or not you have any desire to be in an ongoing group.


Northfield Area Community Solar will be speaking about their work with community solar gardens in the Northfield area at the Quaker Meetinghouse (512 Washington St.) at 11:30 am on Sunday, April 19th.

Do you have your winter reading planned out?  Put Enrique’s Journey, by Sonia Nazario at the top of your list and participate in a community read!  Northfield Reads is initiated by the Northfield Human Rights Commission, and also sponsored by the Northfield Public Library, Northfield Public Schools, Carleton College, and Content bookstore.  

The initial meeting of the Quaker Study/Discussion Group was held at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, March 18th, at the Quaker Meetinghouse (512 Washington Street, Northfield) and  was led by Tom Moen and Sam Johnson.   The group decided to continue meeting every Wednesday night in April from 7:00-8:30 pm at the Meetinghouse.
All are welcome.  It is not necessary to have attended a Quaker Meeting or have any knowledge of the Quaker faith to attend.
