GROUND BLESSING FOR SAINT NICHOLAS AT WTC ON OCT. 18
LIVE ON SATELLITE FEED, ANTENNA TV AND THE INTERNET
 
NEW YORK – The Ground Blessing ceremony for the Saint Nicholas National Shrine at the World Trade Center, on Saturday October 18, 2014 at 12:00 noon, will be broadcast live through a LIVE SATELLITE FEED (see technical information below), both domestically and internationally and will be carried live through the Antenna Satellite TV network, as well through an Internet simulcast through the special internet page for the rebuilding of Saint Nicholas http://www.stnicholaswtc.org/ which is also accessible through the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese official web page http://www.goarch.org/
Established in 1916, the small Greek Orthodox Church of Saint Nicholas was the only house of worship destroyed on Sept. 11, 2001 when the South Tower fell and completely obliterated the old church edifice. The new Saint Nicholas National Shrine will be rebuilt only a short distance away from its original location, at 130 Liberty Street and will be overlooking the 9/11 Memorial.
Archbishop Demetrios of America, primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America stated:
“Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox National Shrine, although destroyed in the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001 is now, with the grace of God, being resurrected at the new World Trade Center and it will soon rise like a glorious phoenix as a National Shrine and a place of pilgrimage for our Nation. It will be a place of faith, a place of peace and a place of solace and hope.”
