Memories of St. Nicholas: “My fondest memory of St. Nicholas was when I went there on June 2 1985 the day before I left for Navy boot camp and received communion and the priest blessed me and told me not to be nervous that St. Nick is the patron saint of sailors and he would watch over and protect me. I went and received communion every year after that on my name day.” ~N.T. #RebuildStNicholas

Reflections on the Ground Blessing:  Throughout the ceremony I was thanking the Good Lord he granted me the opportunity to be there. Never was I so proud to be a Greek Orthodox Christian as I was today. To stand at the base of the World Trade Center and make the sign of the cross in open air with thousands of fellow Christians brought tears to my ears with pride and joy. It is by far something I will always cherish in my heart and soul.  ~J.V. #RebuildStNicholas

Memories of St. Nicholas: "When I worked at City Hall and needed a moment to strengthen my spirit I would walk over [to St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church], light a candle and have time to pray on my lunch hour. It was a refuge in the midst of the busiest city in the world." ~A.R  #RebuildStNicholas
