    There are no Friends Meeting Houses in Santo Domingo or in any part of the DR as far as I know, but you could send a Private Message to mountainannie who is a Quaker, and lives in Santo Domingo. I know she is keen to meet other Quakers.

    Default Quaker Meeting House

    Someone sent me a PM asking "what is a Quaker Meeting House!-- which I assume you can google.. but basically, it would be any simple room, without an altar or any sort of ornamentation. Quakers or more correctly "The Religious Society of Freinds" - started in England in 1652- holding that any individual could make direct contact with God within. Quakers have no set creed or beliefs but hold certain historic testimonies in peace, integrity, and simplicity. Quakers are one of the traditional "peace churches" in the US and have long been leaders in the peace movement. They have always held women as equal members,: all the women at Senaca Falls were either Quakers or Quaker educated.

    no--no--- not Amish---!!!(some of us look a whole lot like hippies)

    more than you wanted to know...

    i step down from the box

    thanks
