In 2023, the 400th anniversary of the birth of St. Mitrofan of Voronezh will be celebrated. The first Voronezh bishop proved himself to be a strong manager, a leader whose opinion was listened to, an associate of the tsar, but at the same time in everyday life he was very modest, meek, lived on the verge of poverty. In his “Spiritual Testament”, St. Mitrofan edified: “For every person, this is the rule of wise men: use labor, keep moderation — you will be rich; drink abstinently, eat little — you will be healthy; do good, run away from evil — you will be saved.” The exhibition “The Rule of Faith and the image of Meekness” will tell about the life of St. Mitrofan as a man who devoted himself to the service of the Church.

More than 100 icons of the exhibition will introduce guests to the private collections of icons of the children’s and family recreation park “NELZHA.<url>” and Alexey Konyushenko. In addition to icons, the exhibition will feature items related to St. Mitrofan.
