Intercession comprises a grand complex of landmarked stone buildings, the masterpiece of Gothic Revival architect Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue. It stands at the juncture between Harlem (historically African-American) and Washington Heights (historically Latino). Intercession members trace their origins to West Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and many parts of the United States, and welcome people of all backgrounds. The breadth of weekly services attests to this community’s beautiful diversity: a sweet chapel service for Healing, an exuberant mass in Spanish, and an exquisitely formal English-language Mass with incense and chimes. This community also lives its spirit through its many programs:

  • Senior group
  • Jazz at the Crypt
  • Intercession Hoops (basketball for youth)
  • SMarts Program (after school arts program for youth)
  • Book Club in P.S.368
  • Girl Scouts troop
