Heart To Heart Festival
Thursday 4th May
Until Sunday 7th May
Organiser of From Heart To Heart Festival
The Convent, which bears the name of the Holy Martyr Grand Princess Elisabeth, was founded in the village of Novinki on the outskirts of Minsk in the Republic of Belarus in 1999. It originated from an Orthodox Sisterhood of the same name.
The main aim of our Convent and Sisterhood is to provide spiritual and social help for the sick and the suffering. The sisters carry out their ministry in many places, including the National Applied Research Centre of Mental Health and a tuberculosis centre, a boarding home for people with disabilities and a boarding home for children with learning difficulties.
The Convent has a farmstead near the village of Lysaya Gora, 19 mi from Minsk. It provides rehabilitation for those determined to get rid of drug and alcohol addiction, for the homeless and ex-prisoners. They live under the nuns’ care and work on the farm, in the fields and gardens and on building sites.
