The Downtown Manhattan Allowed Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends meets outdoors for worhip on Thursdays from June through September each year.
For the 5th Anniversary of 9/11 – Friends expect to meet on this year on Thursday 9/7/2006, 6 pm to 7 pm, rain or shine, at the normal location near the Battery Labyrinth for Contemplation in Battery Park, Lower Manhattan, New York City. Our Quaker committee is aware that New York area Friends and community members might feel moved to worship in silent and possible vocal ministry – in the spirit of remembrance of those who died during the attack of 9/11/2001 in New York City.
Please see our web site for directions on how to arrive from any direction by any means: http://downtownmeeting.org
Each Quaker Friend receiving this is encouraged to plan to bring one or two portable chairs if possible, one for yourself and one for another in the community.
