St. Leontius of Vilnius Glorified in Minsk

This past Sunday Metropolitan Filaret (Vakhromeyev) of the Belorussian Orthodox Church celebrated the glorification of Archimandrite St. Leontius (Karpovich) of Vilnius, a widely venerated saint in Belarus who led the resistance to the Union of Brest in what today is Lithuania and Belarus. The glorification was concelebrated by hierarchs of the Belorussian Orthodox Church and many clergy from the Orthodox Churches in Belarus and Lithuania. More (in Russian) here.
