The central Polesian village of Al’homjel’ has two churches, the classic Polesian wooden church of the Resurrection (1817) and, to accommodate the revival of the parish after the end of Soviet occupation, the church of St. Mary Magdalene (1994).  The August 4 feast of Mary Magdalene is always enthusiastically attended, not only by the parish but also by pilgrims from surrounding villages; a dozen or more priests officiate.
