News & Announcements

   

In December 2017 Wilton Monthly Meeting officially changed its name to Wilton Quaker Meeting.

We wanted to emphasize our Quaker roots. It is by our Quaker name that most people outside the Religious Society of Friends know us.

We were also getting a little tired of explaining to seekers that we really meet every week for worship and only monthly for business.

Please join us any Sunday at 10:00 am for worship. We are family friendly so bring the kids!

On July 15, 2017, we had our first celebration of our 75-year anniversary. We had a wonderful party that included music, poetry, food, dancing, yoga, and a talk on the history of the Meeting. We were very happy to be joined in the celebration by several old friends. Stephanie Kim of the News Times reported on the event.  A copy of the history and a link to the News Times article complete with pictures may be accessed by clicking on the title of this news article and clicking the resulting links at the bottom of the page.

The First Day School Committee and Wilton Quaker Meeting are delighted to let you know that we are offering a new place for children, appropriately, in the heart of meeting for worship.

Any children attending Meeting or First Day School (Sunday School) can now choose to sit on a rug on the floor in front of the fireplace. Other children, as well as one friendly adult, will be there too!

A coalition of community, religious and university organizations, including Wilton Quaker Meeting, has organized to make people aware of the injustice of solitary confinement. 

We are organizing local film screenings and displays of solitary confinement cells.

We generally meet on the 23rd of each month at the Meeting House. Please check our calendar under Events.

We need your help!  Join us.
