Our Convent Organises an Orthodox Festival in Europe For The First Time

Residents of Austria and Germany will have an opportunity to learn more about Orthodox culture and get to know Belarusian traditions this summer. This is the goal of the From Heart To Heart Orthodox exhibition, organised by our Convent in Berlin on June 2-5 and Vienna on June 9-12.

Its purpose — spiritual education — is especially meaningful in 2016, declared the Year of Culture in Belarus. St Elisabeth Convent will share its experience in the field of social ministry and demonstrate various kinds of church art and folk traditions. Visitors will be greeted with an extensive programme, including a concert of the Monastic Choir, a memorial evening in honour of St Elisabeth (watching films The Path of Love and The Nun). Belarusian Hut expo will host workshops on straw weaving and painting on pottery. The visitors will be offered fragrant herbal tea with buns and cakes baked in the Convent. Children will also have something to do: for instance, they will take part in a drawing contest with prizes and watch the performance of Batleika folk puppet theatre.

Visitors can buy a gift made in the workshops of the Convent or their own portraits painted by a nun, as a memory of this exhibition.

This event is open to the public.
