Young Adults Gather with Vassalboro Quarter
This year’s Fall Gathering is an intergenerational sharing of the spirit that is rising up in our meetings. Friends will have an opportunity to go deeper . Meals and freetime will be an opportunity to get to know each other across the quarter and generations.
The gathering will have 2 different sharing workshops/sessions that are about 2 hours each : one Saturday morning and one in the afternoon ; there would be about 2 choices each time.
This is our third year coordinating with YAFs. We all would love to work together, play together, eat together and pray together.
