Over a 35-year period, through the efforts of the Metropolitan, many Orthodox dioceses were revived, 24 nunneries and 10 monasteries were opened. Hundreds of new churches were built and destroyed ones were restored, theological schools and seminaries were opened, educational and publishing activities reached new heights.
The Metropolitan Philaret tirelessly cared about the preservation of ancient church shrines. He was interested in the museum’s restoration activities. Our specialists, restoring the monuments of Belarusian icon painting, participate in the common beneficial work of strengthening the spirituality of the people.
