As I have previously mentioned, and one of the District 6 events we discussed at our District 6 Convention, was the event relating to the restart of construction of the St. Nicholas National Shrine at the World Trade Center. Although preliminary construction has started I had suggested that the start of construction ceremony be held when the Skylight installation on the Church’s Dome begins. That date and the prayer ceremony to be conducted by Archbishop Elpidophoros in St. Nicholas will be on Monday, August 3, 2020 at 11:00 AM.
Only a few people, by invitation, will be allowed into the Church due to its size and the Coronavirus protocols but the actual setting of the Skylights on the Dome by crane is an outdoor occurrence. As such for those that can make it I would encourage you to come on that day and time and witness a truly historic event and a restart long awaited by many. A good location for viewing would be the park next to the St. Nicholas National Shrine at 130 Liberty Street. Best regards and stay safe.
