Yesterday the cupolas were installed over the stairwells of @st_nicholasshrine ! Continuing on over the next few weeks the dome will start to take shape. You can see in front of the church the metal ring tension that will go on the Church next and will hold the dome.

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 Sign Of The Cross, Orthodox Christianity, World Trade Center, Greek, Christians, Blessing, Opportunity, Ears, Pride

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 Bootcamp - and received Communion. The priest blessed me and told me not to be nervous, that St. Nicholas 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 Name Day, Patron Saints, Sailors, Priest, Communion, Blessed, June, Icons, Memories

"The first time I visited St.Nicholas (1993) I was walking on my lunch hour and saw someone go in. I was so happy the doors were open. I entered and felt like I was at home. The warmth and beauty made you forget you were in downtown manhattan. It was a place I treasured and shared with many co-workers, friends and family. I look forward to bringing my children to the new St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and begin new memories." ~ J.

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.
