Minister

Stephen Grellet

​Stephen Grellet (November 2, 1773-November 16, 1855) was born a nobleman in France. He had a military education and legend has it that at the age of seventeen became a body-guard of Louis XVI - the "Lost Dauphin." The story goes that he was the last living person who could have identified the young prince whose fate was unknown after his royal parents were executed.

After escaping the French Revolution Stephen came to America and became a Quaker. He was known for his ministry throughout North America, Europe and the Caribbean and met with many world leaders of the day including Pope Pius VII, Czar Alexander I, and the Kings of Spain and Prussia.
 ​A newcomer at Quaker Meeting whispered to Friend sitting nearby: "When does the service begin?" 

The Friend answered:"When meeting for worship is over."
