Ground Blessing for St. Nicholas Shrine at WTC to be broadcast live

The Ground Blessing ceremony for the Saint Nicholas National Shrine at the World Trade Center, slated to be celebrated on Saturday, October 18, 2014 at 12:00 noon, will be broadcast domestically and internationally live via satellite feed, antenna satellite TV network, and Internet simulcast on the special internet page athttp://www.stnicholaswtc.org.  The site is also accessible through the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese’s official web site http://www.goarch.org.

The broadcasts will begin at 11:45 a.m. and conclude at 1:15 p.m.

Established in 1916, the small Greek Orthodox Church of Saint Nicholas was the only house of worship destroyed on September 11, 2001, when the South Tower fell and completely obliterated the old church edifice. The new Saint Nicholas National Shrine will be rebuilt only a short distance away from its original location, at 130 Liberty Street, and will overlook the 9/11 Memorial.

Since you are here…

…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 euros 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 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.

Dear Friends,

Our website exists owing to your generous assistance, thanks to the funds donated by our beloved readers.

Please assist us in the continuation of our work.
