  • Belarus - Salesian Youth Pilgrimage of Evangelization 2018

    (ANS - Budslau) - A small Belorussian village, Budslau, has become known all over the world because of the miraculous icon of the Mother of God of Budslau, patron saint of Belarus. Pilgrimages to the Budslau National Shrine are a centuries-old tradition in Belarus, back in vogue after the fall of the communist regime. Every year, thousands of pilgrims reach the village: on foot, by bicycle, by car or by train, especially during the "Budslau Festival"; and among these pilgrims this year there were also 110 participants in the Salesian Youth Pilgrimage of Evangelization (SMEP).
