Religious Education

Quaker Meetings have a special responsibility to bring children  and adults under their care into full participation  in the life of the Meeting and into an understanding of the beliefs and practices  of the Religious Society of Friends. The cornerstone of our religious education is our *First Day School program for children , youth, and adults. Our religious education program also includes forums, study groups, worship sharing opportunities, service projects, and our library.

--excerpted from Philadelphia Yearly Meeting Faith & Practice

*The term ”First Day” is from old Quaker usage of “plain speech,” in which the days of the week were referred to as First Day (Sunday), Second Day (Monday), etc.
