Minsk cathedral enshrines relics of Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker
On the feastday of the translation of the relics of Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker, in the cathedral of the Holy Spirit in Minsk, the faithful could venerate for the first time a particle of the Saint’s relics.
In February this year, Metropolitan Philaret of Minsk and Slut, the patriarchal Exarch for all Belarus, went on a pilgrimage with a group of priests, laymen, and theologians, visiting the cities of Bari (Italy) and Fribourg (Switzerland), where the relics of Saint Nicholas are kept. At the request of His Eminence, the Fribourg diocese gave him a particle of the Saint’s relics, which will be enshrined in the capital of Belarus.
