Patron Saint's Day: May 18
There is a church in honour of the Inexhaustible Chalice icon of the Mother of God at the rehabilitation centre of the Convent located in v. Lysaja Hara, Minsk district, where people who want to get rid of drug and alcohol addiction live. This church was consecrated on January 3, 2010. The frescoes on the walls of this church show the history of human fall and his return to God. The icons of St Mary of Egypt, St Moses the Black, St Barbar the Thief and others who used to be sinners but achieved holiness through repentance serve as a testimony of God's mercy and of the fact that salvation is possible for each person. Divine Liturgies are celebrated on Saturdays. The brothers read an Akathist to the Inexhaustible Chalice icon of the Mother of God and the Psalter daily.
