Fire at New York’s St. Nicholas Cathedral

admin | 07 October 2013
Shortly after midnight on Friday, October 4, 2013, a two-alarm fire broke out at Saint Nicholas Cathedral on East 97th Street.

The historic cathedral serves as the cathedra of His Eminence, Archbishop Justinian of Naro-Fominsk, Administrator of the [Moscow] Patriarchal Parishes in the USA.

According to New York’s WABC Eyewitness News, two firefighters were hurt battling the blaze, which was contained to the cathedral’s basement and took two hours to get under control.  Twenty-five units and over 100 firefighters were called to the scene.

The cathedral has a long and venerable history.  Its cornerstone was blessed in 1901, during Saint Tikhon’s tenure as Bishop, and later Archbishop, of North America and the pastorate of Saint Alexander Hotovitzky.  The cathedral was consecrated the following year.

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
