Patron Saint's Day: February 6
The establishment of a chapel in honour of St Xenia of Petersburg in the boarding home No. 3 for adults with special needs in Minsk fifteen years ago was a good start of the future Convent. It was a friendly environment for those living in the boarding home who have to dwell in a limited, confined space and do not have the possibility of external communication. The fact that a chapel was consecrated on the territory of the boarding home made it possible for them to have an outlook into the world of God's love, even if not into the vain and mundane one. This chapel was consecrated on February 6, 1998. Divine liturgy is celebrated in the chapel in honour of St Xenia of Petersburg on Fridays. The residents of the boarding home get together with the brothers and sisters of the Convent on Thursday evenings in order to pray a moleben and akathist to the holy and blessed mother Xenia.
