Photo and description
The Resurrection Church in Minsk has existed since the 16th century. There was an Orthodox brotherhood at the church. In the 17th century, the Orthodox Resurrection Church was closed, and the building was transferred to the Uniates. In 1786, on the site of a dilapidated church, a Uniate temple was built in honor of the Resurrection of the Lord. In 1839, the temple was returned to the Orthodox Church. Many parishioners also wanted to become Orthodox.
In 1856, the Resurrection Church was dismantled because it was located next to the Catherine Church and had few parishioners. The temple was reassembled in another place (Kruptsy) and consecrated in honor of the Protection of the Most Holy Theotokos.
And in the 1990s, the revival of Orthodoxy began in Belarus. The capital of the state, Minsk, grew rapidly. The number of parishioners grew. Therefore, in 1994, it was decided to revive the Resurrection parish in the residential area Zeleny Lug, but the construction began only in 1998. On May 4, 2008, the Resurrection Church was fully completed. The new Orthodox church was consecrated by the Metropolitan of Minsk and Slutsk Filaret.
Regular church services are held in the Resurrection Church. A church library and a Sunday school are organized at the temple. In 2001, at the Resurrection Church, a merciful sisterhood was created in honor of the holy royal passion-bearers Tsar Nicholas and Tsarina Alexandra.
The greatest Orthodox shrine is kept in the lower church - a particle of the relics of the holy Belarusian righteous John of Kormiansky.
