We’re a community of a wide variety of “unprogrammed” Friends (Quaker) Meetings in California, Hawaii, Nevada and Mexico City. We do things year-round but our main gathering, called “Annual Session,” occurs once a year in the summer. Our book of Faith and Practice describes the beliefs of Friends, PacYM’s structures and processes, and the spiritual foundation of these processes and of our way of worship.
