Welcome!

Pacific Yearly Meeting is a community of “liberal, unprogrammed” Friends (Quakers) and Quaker Meetings in parts of 3 countries: Guatemala, Mexico, and the United States, including 3 states of the USA: California, Hawai’i, and Nevada. We’re called a “Yearly Meeting” because we meet annually to worship together and conduct our business, while we strive to live our faith every day in our local meetings and communities. Read more about PYM here.
