Living Letters: Celebrate Cuba Yearly Meeting’s 119th Anniversary
Celebrate Cuba Yearly Meeting’s 119th anniversary – 9-18 November 2019

Every year on the 14th of November, Cuba Yearly Meeting celebrates the arrival in 1900 of the first Friends missionaries to the island. For the last few years, Friends United Meeting has been sending Living Letters to join in the celebration and to experience the life and witness of Cuban Quakerism. This one-week intervisitation trip is gentle enough for older Friends, and is focused on sharing in worship and fellowship.

The Living Letters trip begins with an intervisitation at Miami Friends Church, joining for Sunday worship, followed by time to engage and share with Friends. Many of the members and attenders at Miami Friends are originally from Cuba, and the worship service is similar to the churches at Cuba Yearly Meeting. Then, on Monday, the group will travel together to Cuba to spend a week with Cuban Friends of sharing and worship.

November 9-18, 2019
Registration Deadline: August 15, 2019

The Total Cost for this trip is: $1850.

This is a small group trip. The minimum number of participants is 5 and the maximum is 12.

A booking is considered confirmed when a non-refundable deposit of $200 has been paid.

If the trip fills up, we will maintain a wait-list in case of cancellations.

Please submit one form for each individual.
