A Letter from Manhattan Monthly Meeting

Manhattan Monthly Meeting is in the process of building this school in Kenya for almost a decade now.  With the global pandemic and the reopening of school the space situation is grave. We need to complete the last two classrooms but lack the funds. Please see the call for contributions letter [HERE].

Contributions and questions: Emmanuel Mulindi, Treasurer, Manhattan Monthly Meeting, 15 Rutherford Place, New York, NY 10003, ph 646-418-7273 email:  mannymulindi@hotmail.comFaith and Practice – 2020 revised edition is now available

Copies of the revised edition of Faith and Practice are available to be mailed from the NYYM office. Copies cannot be picked up at this time. Complimentary copies have already been mailed to all Monthly Meeting Clerks, MM Clerks of Ministry & Counsel, and to all Prison Worship Group members.One revision is an important change to Quaker practice. The Membership section has been rewritten to include an additional path to membership. Previously, the only path to membership was via a monthly meeting. Now prospective Friends have the option of applying directly to the yearly meeting via the clerk of Ministry and Pastoral Care Committee. It is hoped the new path will better accommodate those who move frequently, cannot connect with a monthly meeting, or are incarcerated.

To order your copy, contact office@nyym.org. The suggested contribution is $10.00 per copy.Brooklyn Meeting Quakerism 101, 1 pm via Zoom
