St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church to Hold Fundraiser for St. Nicholas National Shrine
On September 11, 2016, from 11:30 am to 6 pm St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Rocky River, Ohio, is holding a drive-thru Gyros and Loukoumades sale to support the rebuilding of St. Nicholas National Shrine at the World Trade Center. All proceeds benefit the St. Nicholas National Shrine. The event is a Philoptochos fundraising initiative. The OCN is inspired by this wonderful example of how parishes can support and help each other. If you live in the Rocky River area, stop by and pick up some great Greek food to support a great cause!
St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church is located at 22909 Center Ridge Road, Rocky River, OH, 44116.
Help rebuild the only church that was destroyed on September 11 at Ground Zero!
Once rebuilt, Saint Nicholas, like the Parthenon that graces the Acropolis, has the potential to inspire millions for generations to come. The parish will continue to function as a parish of the Archdiocese and it will also be a National Shrine on hallowed ground. It will shine as a spiritual beacon of hope and rebirth to cherish the memory of those who were lost that fateful day and to build a better future for generations yet to be born.
