VITEBSK, 2 June (BelTA) – Pilgrims will get together at the Saint Sophia Cathedral to commemorate Saint Euphrosyne of Polotsk on 5 June, BelTA learned from the press service of the Polotsk District Executive Committee.

A church service will be followed by a religious procession from the Saint Sophia Cathedral to the Saint Euphrosyne Convent. Pilgrims will lay flowers at the monuments to Saint Euphrosyne of Polotsk and Saint Nicholas and pray on their way to the Saint Euphrosyne Convent.

There will be a number of events to commemorate Saint Euphrosyne of Polotsk, including religious education projects, online marathons, video marathons, and other thematic events in cultural and educational institutions of Polotsk.

Every year events dedicated to Euphrosyne of Polotsk bring together a great number of believers and pilgrims from all over Belarus. This year, the number of participants is expected to be much smaller due to the epidemiological situation. All public events will be held in the open air and all safety rules will be observed, the press service noted.
