The Complete List of Saints from The Synaxis of the Saints of Belarus


The Synaxis of the Saints of Belarus is commemorated on the 3rd Sunday after Pentecost.

The feast day was originally established pm April 3 1984 through the initiative of Metropolitan Philaret (Vakhromeyev) of Minsk. Within 20 years, the number of saints grew from 14 to 54. In 1999 23 new martyrs of the Minsk Diocese who were martyred between the 1930s to 1950s  were canonized. In 2000, during the council of bishops additional saints were canonized and added to the synaxis because their life and work was closely connected to the Belarussian land. Several other saints were added in 2007 and 2012 resulting in the following list of The Synaxis of the Saints of Belarus:
