Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today officially welcomed Archbishop Elpidophoros of America to New York and announced plans to resume the rebuilding of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and National Shrine at the World Trade Center.

The Friends of St. Nicholas will aim to resume construction with a two-year target to complete the church.
