There is a small chapel in honour of the Holy Martyrs Faith, Hope, Love, and their mother Sophia in the building of the Private Grade School and Sunday School run by our St Elisabeth Convent. It is still being decorated but for the most part, the work has already been done. Every piece of work adds something important to the general design idea. Each new detail does not only make the chapel more beautiful but also adds some meaning to it. Even the smallest brick has its mission.
This is what fresco painter Dmitry Kuntsevich, who is in charge of the mosaic workshop of St Elisabeth Convent, tells about it:
—We did our best to make the chapel look interesting, distinctive, warm, and lively. The fact that the chapel is located in a place where children come together, allowed us to let our imagination run free. We even considered letting children create certain decorative elements themselves but it soon became evident that this kind of work requires serious concentration: you’ve got to teach the children regularly and for a long time. Unfortunately, we did not have this opportunity so we did the majority of tasks on our own.
The idea and its implementation was a joint effort of Sergey Kozyr, Mikhail Lavshuk, Alexander Truskovsky, Maksim Dudarau, Anna Ambrosova, Vitaly Zharov, Sergey Kudlach, Andrey Dudka, Alim Raula and many others.
We hope that the children will pray, study church-related subjects and enhance their creativity. This nice and cosy place will help them to concentrate on prayer and learning.
