For the past few years, the historic church building that houses the congregation of Joy of All Who Sorrow Orthodox Christian Church has been undergoing an extensive renovation/restoration. Throughout this process, expert masons have meticulously replaced dilapidated brick in order to maintain the integrity of this historic building. A time capsule containing historic documents of the church’s original members was discovered and extracted from the building’s cornerstone. And now, on Saturday, May 30th at 10:15 in the morning, the church’s cross will be installed in ceremonious fashion at the apex of the church steeple.

These are exciting times for a church building that was built in 1903, so mark your calendars, folks! Joy of All Who Sorrow is welcoming all of its friends and supporters for this historically monumental installation. If you won’t be able to make it to the ceremony, be sure to take a second to simply look up the next time you’re on 16th Street. You might just see a little history.
