In Novogrudke basketball became sacred business
Competitive spirit priests of New Grudsky archdiocese have called in assistants. Recognising that prayers not always help church-goers to refuse bad habits, ecclesiastics of archdiocese have organised tournament on basketball among the congregation. Commands of three orthodox wards have taken part in competitions - from Ostrovtsa, Leads and Novogrudka. All cares on the tournament organisation were incurred by the prior Piously - the Peter and Paul church in Ostrovtse the father Paul Voronovich. And it was spent on the basis of high school in Rymdjunah.
As a result of hot duels tournament was won by church-goers from Leads. In each command the best players and snipers have been defined. They have received crystal vases, and each player “ sacred “ competitions for memory an icon.
It not the first reference of ecclesiastics to sports. Some years ago there was a companionable meeting on football between priests and workers of militia of this area.
