    WTC steel cross moves to nearby church - By VERENA DOBNIK, AP, Albany Times Union, NY
    Richard Sheirer, head of the city Office of Emergency Management five years ago. 'It goes beyond any religion.'

    Ironworkers sang 'God Bless America' as hundreds of people walked behind the cross to its temporary home facing ground zero outside the 18th-century church, the city's oldest Roman Catholic parish.

    'This cross is a sign of consolation and inspiration to workers who served at ground zero for the 10 months of recovery,' said the Rev. Brian Jordan, a Franciscan priest who had blessed the T-beam days after it was pulled from the wreckage. 'Some interpret it as a cross. Others see it as an artifact that has historical and architectural importance, a reminder that is also a sign of closure.'
