07.08.06 Opening with a Coronation

The Archicathedral Catholic Church situated in Svobody Square suffered a sea change last year. The restorers had a hard job saving the murals that had been plastered after the Great Patriotic War at the command of the Soviet government. Now the walls and the ceiling of the middle pace delight the eye again by the play of colours of the subject and ornamental murals dating back to the XVIII-XIX centuries.

Last autumn a pipe organ made special for the Archicathedral Catholic Church with regard to its size and acoustics was brought from Austria. The organ has been set up and tuned for several of months. Now, after its consecration, the congregation can delight in the beauty of the sounds of the old instrument that will be played by the famous Belarusian organist Vladimir Nevdakh.


The central space on the chancel took up the Ladyís icon. This is a gift of John Paul II consecrated by him in St. Peterís Square in Vatican City. The coronation ceremony of the icon was performed by the head of the Roman Catholic Church in Belarus, Cardinal Kazimir Sventek.
