In following our testimonies of Equality, Integrity, Community, Simplicity, Peace, and Stewardship, and after careful study of the current state of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Public Health Committee saw no responsible course of action other than re-instituting an indoor mask mandate. The Meetinghouse remains open (for worship, meetings, etc.) with the understanding that all will be masked, regardless of vaccination status.
Worship via Zoom is also available.  See more information at the following link: Virtual Meeting for Worship 





". . . walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in everyone." 



~ George Fox, founder of the Religious Society of Friends

Cincinnati Friends Meeting is a semi-programmed Quaker meeting—that means we have a pastor who gives a brief message at the beginning of the service. The rest of our hour together is spent in silent, open worship as we listen to what the still, small voice of God might say to us. Sometimes others might speak out of the silence, or request a hymn. Through such shared ministry we grow together in Spirit and community.

We are an Open and Affirming congregation, and a Solidarity Congregation in relationship with the Sanctuary Movement. By tradition we are Christian, but recognize that our world is interdependent, composed of many cultures and faith traditions. We seek to grow together spiritually, and learn from one another in peace. Respecting our differences, we seek a more compassionate and loving world, helping others as we would like to be helped. We welcome everyone interested in our way of worship and Quaker testimonies—simplicity, peace, integrity, community, and equality.
