Learn about St. Nicholas National Shrine at the World Trade Center, New York. Inspired by the project to rebuild St. Nicholas Shrine, the Orthodox Christian Network is proud to feature stories and news related to its progress. On September 11, 2001, Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church was crushed under the falling Twin Towers. Now, the faithful of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America are called to rebuild that which was once there, so that it may continue to be a beacon of light and hope in lower Manhattan. It will be a house of worship for the Greek Orthodox community, and a place of prayer and solace for all people.
