The next step of the pilgrimage on July 17 was the stay in Baranovichi. A large crowd awaited the arrival of the Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa both in the street and in the Orthodox Church of the Protection of God (Pokrovskij Sobor). The Archbishop of Pinsk and Luninec - Stefan personally presided at the Divine Liturgy.

People brought household icons with them in order to apply them to the traveling one. It turned out that in some houses images of Czestochowa icon were preserved, and were closely guarded and hidden during the communist persecution. It is very moving--people were losing their lives, but protected that which was most sacred to them--the Czestochowa Icon of Mother of God.
