Winter Retreat January 27th to 29th

Our annual winter weekend retreat will take place in town on January 27th to 29th.  The theme will be "Re-Connection, Deep Connection and Carrying On."  More details can be found in the flyer below.  (You may need to click on "Read More").  Check back for details--the workshops and schedule may change.

Organizers are hoping you'll register on-line.  If you need help, e-mail the webminder and I'll pass your message along to the organizers. 


January Schedule

New Year's Day is on a Sunday this year, which throws off our usual schedule.  Meeting for Worship will occur every Sunday, as usual (including New Year's Day), however:

  • potluck is moved to the 2nd Sunday (the 8th), with a session on poetry and prayer to follow
  • Meeting for Worship for Business is moved to the 3rd Sunday (the 15th)

We'll be back to the usual schedule (potluck on the 1st Sunday, MfWfB on the 2nd Sunday) in February.

Young Adult Friend Gatherings

Ottawa Monthly Meeting is currently blessed with an abundance of Young Adult Friends.*  Many of the YAFs are now meeting for a potluck about once a month.  If you self-identify as a YAF and aren't yet connected to this group, ask around on a Sunday or send the webminder an e-mail and I'll put you in touch. 

*Quaker-speak for people roughly in their 20's and 30's who have a connection to Quakers.
