OCN Board Tours St. Nicholas Shrine Construction 2016


Members of the OCN Board of Directors came together in the Fall of 2016 to tour the construction site of St. Nicholas National Shrine at the World Trade Center.  The terrorist attacks of 9/11 destroyed St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, and affected the entire world.  The St. Nicholas National Shrine at the World Trade Center welcomes everyone, and will be a House of Prayer for all people.  Filmmaker Mark Brodie, of MIB Mediaworksan Emmy-winning news and documentary filmmaker who filmed Pistevo – I Believe , created this brief video of the tour for OCN to capture the moment.  The OCN Board and staff would like to thank the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America for providing us this tour and be inspired to continue to share the good works of Orthodoxy.dsc06093

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.  Click here to learn more.
