MCCNY offers a spiritual home for New York City's LGBTQI Community open to all. We believe MCCNY is called to be the spiritual center of our city. Our dream, and the dream of the Gospel, is that people from all walks of life will live together in right relationship and share their gifts, talents and resources. No city on earth and no community of faith, is better poised to live out that dream than MCCNY.
