A Ground Blessing ceremony for the Saint Nicholas National Shrine at the World Trade Center took place on October 18, 2014 at its site on Liberty Street, overlooking the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. As the only house of worship destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the church is set to be rebuilt as a shrine by the end of 2016. Some 2,500 persons were in attendance.

The grounds for the National Shrine, designed by world-renowned architect Santiago Calatrava, were blessed in an “Agiasmos” (Greek for sanctification) ceremony led by His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America.  read more
