Bayou Quarterly Meeting

The Bayou Quarterly Meeting  of South Central Yearly Meeting is comprised of Friends from Louisiana (Baton Rouge, Lafayette, New Orleans,) and Southeast Texas (Galveston, Houston). Although we are a quarterly meeting, we meet twice a year (January and September) because of the wide geographical area our quarter covers. We spend a relaxed weekend together, getting reacquainted and conducting quarterly business in Moss Bluff, Louisiana, north of Lake Charles. Our next quarterly meeting will be held from September 22-24, 2017.


Remember that we have scholarships so please do not let finances get in the way of joining us.  Below is the registration form.  Please distribute it far and wide to anyone, Quaker or not, who you think might enjoy a weekend of fellowship. We will eat good food, sit quietly with one another, listen intently, play together...and shore each other on our leaning sides so that we may sail straight again.

I hope to see you soon.



A brief summary of our last Quarterly Meeting, held January 13-15, 2017

Saturday we heard about eco-justice from  Rich Corl of Live Oak Meeting in Houston, and experienced a  walking meditation on the Stations of the Cross on the retreat grounds led by Marcel LaFlamme also from Live Oak.   

Sandwiched in between those two activities we heard about the joys and concerns of each of our five Meetings, nominated a new Quarterly Clerk, Chris Drexler,  and began processing ideas for the adult program at SCYM Annual Sessions for 2018 and 2019.  Our traditional “Show and Tell” event on Saturday evening was enlightening and entertaining as usual, and the food was wonderful.  Hope you can join us in September--check back the beginning of September for registration packet and more details.
