Baltimore Yearly Meeting is the regional organizing unit for the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in the area of central Pennsylvania, Maryland, parts of West Virginia, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. It is through membership in a Yearly Meeting that individual Quakers become connected with the larger Quaker movement worldwide. "In fellowship, in deep listening, in waiting worship, in commitment to each other, it richly rewards those who embrace the challenge of being a Yearly Meeting Friend." (2011 draft Faith and Practice)

Memorial Meeting for Pat Loring
Bethesda Friends Meeting invites Friends to a Memorial Meeting to honor the life and mourn the death of Patricia (Pat) Loring on Saturday, November 5th, at 1pm in our Meeting House. Pat was a member of our Meeting and a participant in the Shalem Spiritual Direction program. Throughout the 1990's, she wrote Listening Spirituality and led classes focused on Quaker faith and practices. We all in Baltimore Yearly Meeting benefited from her wisdom, insights, and loving consideration.
