Patron Saint's Day: St Lazarus Saturday
A church in honour of the Righteous Lazarus was consecrated at the Northern Cemetery in Minsk on May 10, 2005. The snow-white church is erected near a crematorium, as a witness of the victory over death and as a reminder of the fact that all are alive unto God. Frescoes of the Chora monastery church (now Istanbul) that show the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and the Last Judgement that follows it served as samples for the mural paintings of this church. Panikhidas are served every Saturday. Divine Liturgies followed by panikhidas are celebrated on Sundays.
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.
