We thank those involved from our parish and those who prepared the 70 plus page submission to the state for this honor recently announced by our governor. Fr. Thomas was interviewed by various television and print media as a result of this announcement. On November 8th, the Cathedral was approved to be on the National Register of Historic Places. Here are links to some of the news stories that appeared:

Co-Naming of State Street as "St. Raphael of Brooklyn Place"

June 6, 2021 marked an historic day in the life of St. Nicholas Cathedral's history. Clergy and elected officials gathered on the corner of State and Bond for the unveiling of the new street sign in honor of our founding priest and first bishop, St. Raphel of Brooklyn. Our block of State street is now "St. Raphael of Brooklyn Place". This was supposed to take place in 2020 when we celebrated our 125th anniversary of St. Raphael's arrival and the 100th anniversary of our State Street location but was delayed because of the pandemic. Thanks to all who helped make today a reality. In addition to His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph's presence today, we had representation from the Russian Orthodox Church, the Greek Orthodox Church, the Orthodox Church in America and several Antiochian Orthodox clergy. Local politicians included United States Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, State Senator Andrew Gounardes, City Councilman Stephen Levin, Assemblywomen Jo Anne Simon, Mr. John Abi-Habib, the Honorary Counsel General of Lebanon in New Jersey and special guest, the new Ambassador of Syria to the United Nations, His Excellency, Bassam Sabbagh.

Weekend of Celebrations

Thank you to our co-chairs, Norma Khoury and Elaine Khoury and all who helped plan and participated in our “Weekend of Celebrations” last weekend. There were many hours of preparation to get the Cathedral ready and to plan the events of the weekend. Without the entire effort of all those who labored and sacrificed, it would never have happened. Even until the day people arrived, the final touches were being completed. 

It was a beautiful weekend and all of our hierarchs and out of town guests, including our special guest, His Eminence Metropolitan HILARION of the Russian Orthodox Church, expressed their thanks to our parish for a wonderful weekend. 

You can see all the photos from the weekend via this link (Thank you to Khourieh Destinie Winn and Sub-deacon Andre Christoforides for taking these photos.

Building Project is Underway!--Updated March 6, 2019

Thanks be to God, after several years of dreaming and the last 18 months of serious planning, yesterday we signed with an architectural firm and have set in motion our plans to build a small addition in the alleyway of the Cathedral. The highlight of this addition will be an elevator for our elderly and disabled and much needed church school rooms for our children. Once the architectural firm has finalized the plans and the the design is ready, we will hold a parish meeting to explain everything and, after receiving the blessing of Metropolitan JOSEPH, we will kick off our fund-raising efforts. You will hear more and more about this in the days and weeks to come and start seeing work done this summer. Thanks to all who have gotten us to this point and to the generosity of Rose Faris and her brother Edward Faris who left us with a substantial amount to help us start this project. May their memory be eternal!

March, 2019 Update: We just received approval for our ZD-1 from the City of New York. We are able to build everything we wanted including two floors, basement and church leval, in the alleyway. We are now entering Phase II which will entail the plans for the interior details now that our "envelope" of the new addition has been approved. Things are moving along!

Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Pascha in Photos

This album contains photos of the faces of just some of our living icons at St. Nicholas who made this Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Pascha special. If you have any candid shots to add, please send them to Fr. Thomas. Many of our parishioners have posted photos of the main "scenes" of the week, the beauty of our Cathedral and the hierarchs and clergy celebrating the services, however, these photos are the candid shots of our faithful without whom we would be celebrating in an empty church. God bless you all. Christ is Risen! المسيح قام
