Exiled Belarusian Archbishop Tadeusz Kondrusiewicz will lead his flock in a virtual Advent retreat this month.
The website of the Catholic Church in Belarus reported Dec. 1 that the archbishop will lead the retreat at the Cathedral of the Holy Name of Mary in the capital, Minsk, from Dec. 3 to Dec. 6 "with the help of audiovisual media."
It said that recordings of Kondrusiewicz's reflections would be posted on the website.
Kondrusiewicz, the archbishop of Minsk-Mohilev and president of the Belarusian bishops' conference, was turned back at the border Aug. 31 when he attempted to return home following a trip to Poland. The authorities later claimed that his passport was "invalid," but invited him to appeal the decision.
