Photo of the Day for March 28, 2013: Maundy Thursday / Вялікі чацьверг

Awaiting Maundy Thursday Mass, Church of St. Casimir, Ljepjel’ 2007.  У чаканьні Сьвятой Імшы, Вялікі чацьверг, касьцёл Сьв. Казіміра, Лепель 2007 год.

Like so many other churches in areas occupied by the Soviets, the Roman Catholic church in Ljepjel’ was desecrated; local Soviet authorities used the church as a warehouse for old machinery.  Through the devotion and hard work of parishioners and then-parish priest Father Mieczislaw the church was reclaimed and restored in the early 1990s and reconsecrated in 1995.
