Church of Aghia Sophia is Being Rebuilt in New York!

"And send word to the Franks, that the Turk has taken the City, to come and empty it, to leave nothing behind. To take Aghia Sophia, with its gold screens, to take the Gospel, and the Altar.


"And our Lady when she heard it, her eyes filled with tears, and Michael and Gabriel they comforted her: Weep not our Lady, and be not tearful, With the passing of years, and in time, they'll be ours again".

Until such a time as that arrives, the Church of the Holy Wisdom of God -Aghia Sophia- is being built not on the Bosphorus of the Roman Empire, but in the mountains of the Empire State, in Woodstock, NY.

An exact replica of the Great Church of the Holy Wisdom of Constantinople is being rebuilt. The new Aghia Sophia will be a functioning Church, not a museum. It is being constructed at the Greek Orthodox Monastery of the Holy Ascension.
