The Catholic Fest in honor of one of the most revered national shrines – the icon of the Mother of God of Budslav, included in the UNESCO Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, takes place from July 1 to July 2 at the National Sanctuary in Budslav (Minsk region, Myadel district).
The pilgrimage tradition in Budslav is already 28 years old. Going on a journey, each of the pilgrims determines for themselves the goal and request with which it goes to the Mother of God of Budslav. It is not customary to talk about it, but everyone has it. For the sake of it, the sacrifice is made – overcoming a considerable distance on foot. While the journey it is time for thinking about life.
