A live stream video feed (here) is now available to view the real time rebuilding of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and National Shrine at the World Trade Center.
St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, the only house of worship destroyed by the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, is being rebuilt at 130 Liberty Street at the World Trade Center in New York City. The video service, provided by EarthCam Inc., will provide 24-hour/day live streaming with time lapse capability.
EarthCam’s Chief Executive Officer, Brian Cury, an Orthodox Christian, has donated the equipment and service for this project. “We are extremely grateful to Mr. Cury for his generous stewardship offering, allowing our faithful and people around the world the opportunity to participate in the rebuilding of St. Nicholas Shrine by viewing the construction progress on the St. Nicholas National Shrine website (www.stnicholaswtc.org). Visitors to the site will be able to follow the long-awaited rebuilding of St. Nicholas,” said Jerry Dimitriou, Archdiocese Executive Director of Administration.
The small calendar below shows our upcoming events for the week. For an extended schedule and Up-To-Date event times see the Parish Master Calendar.
You can find our contact information and directions to the church here. We look forward to hearing from you and visiting with you at church.
We also want to better serve our existing stewards. To that end, we ask that they complete a Stewardship Contact card.
Completing a Steward Ship card helps ensure that we keep everyone updated on important events and activities and helps us better utilize our time, talent and treasure.
