NEW YORK – The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America expresses deep sorrow, concern and sympathy to our Serbian Orthodox brethren for the massive fire that destroyed yesterday evening the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of Saint Sava in lower Manhattan.
His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America responding to the sad news of the catastrophic fire stated: “We stand together with our Serbian Orthodox brothers and sisters, who are saddened by this loss of their beloved cathedral, on the day of our Lord’s Resurrection. We pray to the Risen Christ that the hope of His resurrection sustains them and strengthens them in the face of such adversity.”
