Monthly Meetings that Make-up the Abington Quarter
"The Quarterly Meeting is designed to bring together a larger group for inspiration and counsel and to consider more varied interests than a Monthly or Preparative Meeting can undertake. It is composed of constituent Monthly Meetings, each of which shall appoint representatives to attend Quarterly Meeting.
"... Its more helpful function should be to aid and encourage its constituent Monthly Meetings to greater interest and service and to give its members an increasing vision of Truth." (Source: Faith and Practice of the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting)
