On [[September 6]], 1955,
the church was destroyed again during the [[w:Istanbul Pogrom|Istanbul Pogrom]]. Another small chapel has been rebuilt on the site, but the church has not yet been restored to its former size. Today, in addition to the church, the compound includes the underground shrine of the Zoodochos Pigi with the holy spring which has golden fish in it. The spring still flows to this day and is considered by the faithful to have wonderworking properties.
The sanctuary is directed by a titular bishop and is one of the most popular among the Orthodox of Istanbul, who visit it especially during the [[w:Easter Friday|Friday after Easter]], and on the feast day of the [[Elevation of the Holy Cross]] on [[September 14]]. On these two days, a great feast, both popular and religious takes place there.<ref name="JANIN"/> Funerals of people to be buried in the nearby cemetery are also celebrated in the church.
