CANADIAN YEARLY MEETING: AUGUST 8-14
It is less than a month until this year’s CYM in session online events.
Registration for Canadian Yearly Meeting in session online (#CYM2021, August 8-14) is open.
There will be opportunities for worship, fellowship, learning and sharing. :Monica Walters-Field will be giving the Sunderland P Gardner lecture on the topic of “Love and Justice, Hope and Imagination”. Winnipeg Monthly Meeting, led by Janet Ross, will be offering Quaker Study sessions through the week on the topic of “Things That Are Eternal”.
The response to our call for Special Interest Groups has been strong, and the options will be posted around July 17.
We particularly invite families with children to attend and participate in the youth program. It has been a long time since many of our Quaker children have been able to gather, and our Youth Program coordinator has been busy organizing events. In addition to the morning programs (30 minutes), we will be holding evening Family Worship.
There will be a poetry retreat held the day before #CYM2021 – to share favourite poems, or to turn your hand to writing.
Information about the schedule can be found at quaker.ca/yearlymeetinginsession. There is a registration link which will also allow you to volunteer to support the event.
The best way to get updates is to subscribe to the CYM electronic Newsletter (https://quaker.ca/news-events/newsletter/). The latest information will be posted on the website.
