Tree of Hope

Ground Zero workers helped plant this Norway spruce on November 22, 2003 in place of a giant sycamore tree that was struck down during the collapse of the World Trade Center. In a special Thanksgiving service, St. Paulís dedicated the new tree as the “Tree of Hope,” a reminder of the affirmation of the power of love in the face of tragedy.
