"Catholic church of the Holy Trinity (St. Roh)" Catholic church of the Holy Trinity - Saint Roh Tip by Carletto76

 
 

Not far from the Jakuba Kolasa square, walking behind the usual big buildings which face the main street, a little higher on a small hill, lies the catholic church of the Holy Trinity, dedicated to St. Roh. The little hill where the church was bild is called Zolotaja Gorka (Golden Hill) and of course it has many legends. It was build around 1860 during a cholera epidemy by some Polish catholics over a catholic cemetery. St. Roh is the saint patron of surgeons and defender of people and animals from illnesses.
Nowadays it's used both as a christian temple and a house for philarmonic concerts. Curios thing is that services here are in Belarusian only, and not in Polish which is usually the most common language for catholics in this part of Europe.
