  • Welcome

    Our sister relationship with Cuba Yearly Meeting is an important part of the religious life of New England Yearly Meeting, a ministry to which we feel corporately called. Cuban Quakers are our dear sisters and brothers, despite differences in culture, language, political and economic systems. 

    Puente de Amigos (Bridge of Friends) Committee was formed in 1991 to foster this spiritual relationship, based on mutual respect and equality. Its primary task is to arrange for exchanges of religious visitors between the two yearly meetings. Please let us know if you are interested in being part of our sister relationship with Cuban Friends.
