Patuxent Friends

Patuxent Friends Monthly Meeting was established in 1980 upon a strong current of Quaker Universalism. We, who are called Quakers or Friends, are members of the Religious Society of Friends. We believe God is present in every person. We have no formal creed, no ritual, dogma, nor liturgy. Instead, we gather in a circle of communal silence, creating a space where we listen attentively and expectantly for Divine guidance, both individually and corporately.

We strive to respond in love, rather than react in fear; we seek peace both inward and outward in our daily lives; we are led to implement our concerns for the equal rights of all. Many of us have been drawn to the Religious Society of Friends because of its dual commitment to Spiritual awareness and social action. We support each other on our continuing journey toward a more perfect understanding of the light of the Spirit shared by all.
