Who, What & How

PQM Mission Statement:

Philadelphia Quarterly Meeting is a representative body of the eight monthly meetings within the city of Philadelphia and exists to serve those meetings and the institutions under its care.

It does so by holding periodic Meetings for Business relevant to those meetings and institutions, lifting up member meeting events and ministries, and facilitating intercommunication to foster community.

In accordance with Faith and Practice, Quarterly Meeting serves as the body through which minutes of concern from Monthly Meetings are received, discerned, seasoned and approved for eventual consideration by Philadelphia Yearly Meeting.
