Saint Sophia Greek Orthodox Church in New London, CT is sponsoring a GYRO Day on September 11 from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm with the proceeds going to re-building of Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church which was destroyed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack.
Though small in stature, St. Nicholas Church was a place of ministry and worship both for the parishioners and local residents and workers in the Financial District of Manhattan. Following its collapse, the legacy of this tiny Church continued and after ten years the church is about to be re-built!
Saint Nicholas Church will be a national shrine of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese where one can light a candle, kneel to pray, sit quietly, or go to the bereavement space to find solace in their own tradition. This sacred Shrine will truly be a house of prayer for all people.
You can help the building efforts by attending GYRO Day on 9/11, 2014. Buy a gyro, fries and rice pudding for $10.00 and all proceeds will go the re-building fund.
