203 чалавека, сябраў і прыхільнікаў ініцыятывы "Інстытут нацыянальнай памяці" звярнуліся да вышэйшых дзяржаўных чыноўнікаў Беларусі - Прэзідэнта А.Лукашэнкі, Старшыняў абедзвюх Палатаў Нацыянальнага Сходу Б.Батуры і Ў.Андрэйчанкі, Прэм'ер міністра С.Сідорскага, а таксама да "міністраў і ўсіх грамадзян Беларусі" - са зваротам, у якім звярнулі ўвагу на цяжкі стан беларускае мовы ў грамадстве, а таксама на неабходнасць мераў па абароне, захаванні і пашырэнні беларускае мовы.

Пад зваротам паставілі свае подпісы дзяржаўныя чыноўнікі і апазіцыянеры, навукоўцы, пісьменнікі, дзеячы культуры і мастацтва, студэнты, рабочыя.

Сярод іншых, Зварот падпісалі і праваслаўныя святары - двое з Беларускай Праваслаўнай Царквы: прот. Георгій Латушка, настаяцель Свята-Петра-Паўлаўскага сабору г. Мінска - адзінага, дзе адбываюцца рэгулярныя богаслужэнні на беларускай мове; прот. Сергій Гардун, дацэнт Мінскай Духоўнай Акадэміі, загадчык кафедры біблеістыкі Інстытута тэалогіі БДУ, а таксама святар, намаганнямі якога зроблены шэраг перакладаў богаслужбовых тэкстаў на беларускую мову, удзельнік Біблійнай камісіі Беларускага Экзархату; апроч названых, Зварот быў падпісаны і прот. Леанідам Акаловічам, святаром непрызнанай і некананічнай Беларускай Аўтакефальнай Праваслаўнай (Народнай) Царквы.

Very good news.  Thanks for keeping us informed.  A very good move for pastoral reasons.  IA good way to bring people back to the church after Communist rule.


Here in Toronto there is one Belorusian Church named after your patron Saint: St: Efrosinia.
I visit it once during Easter Matins.
I don't know if the bishop: Bishop Nikolai is still alive or not.
He studied at the Ukrainian Orthodox seminary here in Canada., but came after WW2 and was born in Belarus.

Unfortunately the Parish in Toronto is under the jurisdiction of schismatic Belarusian Autocephalous Orthodox Church. But it's not after St. Euphrosine but after St. Cirill of Turov (524 St. Clarens Avenue, Toronto, ON, M6H 3W7, Canada
Phone: 1-416-530-1025). Or maybe you're talking about different Parish?

Do you mean Bishop Nicholas Matsukievich? I don't know. I'm not good at history of Belarusian Church on emigration.

edit: I've found St. Euphrosyne's on ACROD directory. It was because of different ways of spelling Belarusian in it.

I remember seeing Belarussian listed as an endangered language, which is unusual for a language with millions of speakers, and a state.

We used to have a Belarussian parish here which was in submission to the Vatican: it's now a Romanian one.  The building was a fire station.

There was (is?) a Belarussian Orthodox Church near Ukrainian Village, where the Slavs of all sorts are congregated.  It was in a remodeled roller skating rink I think.  I don't recall seeing anyone under fifty, but tha was before the fall of communism.  I knew a number of Belarussians in the OCA, including our matushka.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

In Belarus almost everything (newspapers, TV news, books, officials' speeches) is said/written in Russian. The Bealrussian is only used by tiny groups of the opposition and Byz/Roman Catholics. It's completely absent in political and social life. People who speak Belarusian in public usually are called "nationalists" or "chauvinists".

No there aren't much similar. Belarusian is much more similar to Ukrainian than to Belarusian (at least in vocabulary and grammar). Haven't I answered you it here?

Мітрапаліт Менскі і Слуцкі Філярэт падтрымлівае ўвядзенне беларускай мовы да набажэнстваў:
Quote
“Для мяне гэта не праблема. Я хоць і не валодаю добра беларускай мовай, але заклікаю тых сьвятароў, якія на ёй добра гавораць, часьцей выступаць з казаньнямі па-беларуску”, — заявіў мітрапаліт Мінскі і Слуцкі Філарэт, Патрыяршы экзарх усяе Беларусі.
Ён нагадаў, што ў Петрапаўлаўскім саборы ў Менску некаторыя набажэнствы праходзяць на роднай мове беларусаў.

Архімандрыт Аляксій (Шынкевіч) дадаў, што да цяперашняга часу на беларускую мову ўжо перакладзены тэксты шмат якіх службаў, выдадзены тэксты ранішніх і вечаровых малітваў для праваслаўных на беларускай мове, па жаданьні ў менскім Свята-Духавым катэдральным саборы вянчаньне можа праходзіць на беларускай мове, перадае БелТА.

I went to this church about 20 years ago and now I don't see it listed.  I remember buying a print of St. Euphrosinia for my grandmother there.  Maybe I go the name wrong.  But it was not the church on St. Claren's Avenue.

My priest said there used to be 2 Belarusian Orthoodx Churches in Toronto 20 years ago and now only 1.

I have heard that more & more parts of the service are being chanted now in Serbian in the Serbian Orthodox Church.  A good idea.

I wish the Belarusian Church the very best in their efforts to use the modern Berarusian language in services.
