During the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001, the Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church was the only house of worship destroyed when the South Tower fell at the World Trade Center.

On July 4, 2022, the rebuilt Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, now a National Shrine, will be Consecrated in a ceremony that will draw over 1,500 faithful from around the United States and mark the Church forever as a house of worship and prayer.

By connecting the Consecration to the Fourth of July – the Shrine is forever bound to what it means to be an American; tolerant of different beliefs and respectful of other faith traditions, while committed to a place for faith in the public square.

The re-building of this Church was an act of faith – faith in God and in the American vision of religious liberty. The Friends of Saint Nicholas and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America are sponsoring the event, which will take place within the Shrine and in the surrounding Liberty Park.

The Consecration Service is performed in the context of the Divine Liturgy and will include the sealing of the Holy Relics of Saint Nicholas within the Altar Table. The full service of the Consecration can be found here.

WHO: Archbishop Elpidophoros of America, Representatives of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, Governor Kathy Hochul of New York, Mayor Eric Adams of New York City, the leadership of the Friends of Saint Nicholas, officials of the Port Authority of New York &New Jersey, and Greek Orthodox Faithful from around the United States.

WHAT: The Consecration of the Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and National Shrine at the World Trade Center and Press Conference at the conclusion of the Service with the leadership of the Friends of Saint Nicholas and Church officials.

WHERE: The St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and National Shrine
130 LibertyStreet, New York, New York – World Trade Center

WHEN: Monday, July 4, 2022, at 9:30 am
