Church donates $100K to shrine near Ground Zero

On March 8, 2016, Jim Collar wrote in USA Today about St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, a closing parish in Appleton, Wisconsin, donating $100,000 — most of its remaining assets — to the St. Nicholas National Shrine near the site of the World Trade Center.

The St. Nicholas National Shrine is being built to replace the former St. Nicholas Church, a tiny church destroyed by the collapse of the World Trade Center during the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

St. Nicholas in Appleton is merging with Fond du Lac’s Greek Orthodox Parish of Holy Trinity.
