Dear Parish Family,

On Sunday, January 18, 2015, I made a special and sacred appeal to you. Having presented the extraordinary videos and shared my overwhelming support for the new St. Nicholas National Shrine that morning, on behalf of your Church family, I call upon you to help rebuild the only Church destroyed on 9/11 and to assist in launching Orthodox Christianity into American consciousness at a level previously unimaginable. The Saint Nicholas Church of Lower Manhattan is being resurrected as The Saint Nicholas National Shrine at Ground Zero and each Church of our Archdiocese is asked to support this critically important effort.

Thanks to all who attended, including our many guests from Wellspring Ministries and friends of our parishioners. Special thanks to all who made the delicious Vasilopites that were distributed and auctioned, thanks to those who purchased them, thanks to those who brought the delicious food for dinner, and thanks to Katie Wilson and our Philoptochos Board and thanks to our Co-Chairs, Dina Tagalos Kearns, Eva Sarantis, & Pat MacDougal for overseeing this fundraising effort. We shared an unforgettable and incredible evening together and we give thanks to our Lord for His blessings upon us.
