This group of local clergy, all practicing within a few block of each other, held its first meeting spring 2009 in New York City’s East Village. In a desire to know each other personally and to see where partnership might lead, the group has grown around its shared mission to serve, to celebrate its tremendous diversity, and to rejoice in the rich traditions represented.
