Welcome to St. Nicholas and Christmas...

St. Nicholas Church at the World Trade Center, New York City, New York, USA

Good News after so many years!
This St. Nicholas Church is finally to be rebuilt.

After so many years of struggle the only church that was destroyed in the events of September 11, 2001 is finally allowed to be rebuilt. People will once again have a peaceful church to visit in this midst of their busy day and those of the church's congregation a church home once again. (It's so nice to hear some nice news for a change, isn't it?)

Please read more about it here.

Many thanks to the wonderful New York artist,  Dora, who passed on to me this positive and happy news! (Visit her site - she's a fabulous artist!)

From Governor Cuomo's office concerning the rebuilding of this St. Nicholas Church came this statement: 
“Rebuilding St. Nicholas Church, with a nondenominational bereavement center, is not just good news for the Greek Orthodox community, but for all New Yorkers. With this agreement, we are continuing New York’s collective healing, restoration and resurgence.”
