Yurovichi Monastery

Yurovichi Monastery
17 Jun 2020

Yurovichi Monastery of the Nativity of Theotokos is the only specimen of the Vilnius Baroque in Gomel Oblast. It was founded by the Jesuits in the early 18th century to preserve the relic worshipped by both the Orthodox and Catholic believers - the wonderworking icon of the Merciful Mother of God of Yurovichi. In 1855 the relic was taken out of the country. Today the monastery has its copy. The original can be seen in St. Barbara’s Church in Krakow. The monastery compound also includes the Church of the Nativity of the Most Holy Mother of God, which got the image of St. Alexander Nevsky from Emperor Alexander II in 1867.
