New City Press is one of more than 20 publishing houses of the Focolare Movement. Founded in 1943 by Chiara Lubich, the Focolare began with a small community in Trent, Italy, who felt called to bring about the unity that Jesus prayed for to the Father: "That they may all be one" (Jn 17:21 ). Today, it is a worldwide movement approved by the Catholic Church.

The mission of New City Press is to develop and promote the Focolare's vision that all people are part of the one human family. It publishes both scholarly and popular works that attempt to foster a greater unity in the world. Our books explore theological foundations for faith and spirituality, ecumenical and interreligious initiatives, and connections between religion and human identity, relationships, and culture.
