According to the Archdiocese news release, Bishop Dean Wolfe, Rector of Saint Bartholomew’s Church, extended his blessing to Archbishop Elpidophoros for this liturgy to take place.
St. Bartholomew’s Church is a historic Episcopal parish founded in 1835, and located on the east side of Park Avenue between 50th and 51st Street , in New York City.
The current church was constructed in 1917. It is known as Byzantine Revival and was designed by celebrated American architect Bertram Goodhue. On October 31, 2016, the St. Bartholomew’s Church and Community House complex was designated a National Historic Landmark, for its significance as an outstanding example of early 20th-century ecclesiastical architecture.
