When in Minsk, take some time to visit this church and to thank God for the privilege of being alive and being lucky enough to be visiting Belarus. This is a truly special place to visit. Not for a picture only. But to remind oneself of the bless that is the human existence.

The outside surface, brick is visually very pleasing but like most churches, it's the inside that really inspires. The main door is a massive, heavy affair with beautiful stained glass. The alter is sublime in its structure and materials.

I sit here frequently and it's a really nice spot. I am looking forward to the musical program starting pre-Easter.

I did not spend too much time visiting this beautiful church, but the highlight most certainly is the replica Shroud of Turin. Given that the actual shroud rarely comes on public display these days, it was really quite moving to see a replica, even if it’s not the real thing. There are very few “old” building left in Minsk, so each one is a treasure.

This is a beautiful, relatively contemporary catholic cathedral smack dab in the middle of the Belarus national plaza. It’s a beautiful building and well worth seeing.

This Catholic red brick Church looks pretty much average. What's most interesting about it is the contrast it makes with the grey massive Soviet style surroundings, dominated by huge government administration bldgs.
The interior is again average, not that decorated, with the biggest attraction being allegedly the copy of the Turin's Shroud, displayed right from the main entrance.

The red church is well worth visiting, standing on one side of the great sqaure. There is a fabulous statue of st Michael killing a dragon outside, and a statue of st Francis of Assissi at the side. When we visited, there was a christening in progress of twins!

Outside is very interesting. It will catch your eyes from the distance. Inside is nothing really special. Outside of the church you will find one of the most interesting statues in the city.

This church is very central and quite impressive on the inside. I enjoy watching a mass during my visit.

This isark in Independence Square. The locals refer to it as the this is an historic landmark in Independence Square. The locals refer to it as the Red church. It was built by a family in honor of their two children, Simon and Helena, who tragically died young. During the Soviet era, it was used as a cinema. It is a very active and functioning Roman Catholic Church… Ministering to the homeless, refugees, and immigrants.
