WMM participates in the Monthly Meeting Partners Project
Wilton Monthly Meeting was selected by New York Yearly Meeting as one of the first two monthly meetings in NYYM to participate in the Monthly Meeting Partners Project, a colaboration with New England Yearly Meeting.
The heart of the project is intensive work with six monthly meetings or worship groups over the next three years as we seek new ways to nurture multigenerational community life and worship and best support the spiritual lives of children and youth.
