Christ Is Risen! Truly, He Is Risen! (Photoreport From Red Church)

On 27 March Christians of different denominations who use the Gregorian calendar celebrated Easter.

The Catholics of Minsk also started celebration with a morning liturgy. At 7 a.m. the Catholic church of St. Simeon and Helen  was crowded. The faithful were eagerly anticipating the moment when f. Uladzislau Zavalniuk will say these important words: “Christ is risen!”.

Afterwards a cross procession around the church took place. Those, who hadn’t consecrated Easter dishes on Saturday could do it after the mass to return to the family table fully prepared.

Christ is risen! Truly, he is risen!
