Church's restoration

Restoration of Svyato-Voznesenskaya Orthodox church (The Ascension Orthodox church) at Zabychanie village of Kostjukovichi district is afloat. The brick laying has already been restored, windows have been set, steeple and dome have been made. The interior and exterior are been restored. The restoration started thanks to the donations made by the region's believers.

"Restoration takes several years", Father Mikhail, priest of The Church of Mary Magdalene, told. "At the same time a great number of people have been donating to advance opening of the church".

The church dates back to the early XVIIth c., when the wooden building was constructed thanks to the initiative of a local landowner. The building in brick was constructed at the same place in 1897, two centuries later, timed to Ascension Day.

After the Soviet government separated Church from State, the church in Kostjukovichi functioned till May 1932. In 1932 its last priest Bartoshevich was repressed and moved to the unknown place. The church was ransacked, bells and crosses were taken away, but the building survived. During the WWII it wasn't destroyed either. Svyato-Voznesenskaya Orthodox church is rightfully considered to be one of the major architectural monuments of Kostjukovichi district.
