St. Nicholas National Shrine Construction Restart


As a reminder 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 had started I had suggested to the Friends of St. Nicholas and the Archbishop that the start of construction ceremony be held when the Skylight installation on the Church’s Dome begins. The prayer ceremony will be as previously mentioned conducted by Archbishop Elpidophoros in St. Nicholas this Monday, August 3, 2020 at 11:00 AM and was announced in the press today.

Only a few people, by invitation, will be allowed into the Church, due to its size and the Coronavirus protocols, and in a seating area nearby. Various dignitaries will attend including New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. The 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. If you come wear masks, social distance, and stay safe. The photo of myself was taken Thursday morning when I was at the project site with the construction crews and when the first Skylight was set on the St. Nicholas National Shrine’s Dome. Best regards.

Fraternally yours,

Brother Lou Katsos

AHEPA District 6 Governor
