Catholics take part in a procession around the Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary as they celebrate Easter in the town of Bobruisk, some 140 km (87 miles) southeast of Minsk April 8, 2012. The church was built in 1912 before it was closed by Soviet authorities in 1946 and then partly destroyed and disfigured. Its tower was ruined when a five-storey building was erected in front of the church in 1960. Although the Catholic church was returned to believers in 1990, the five-storey building is still used by a construction company, a priest of the church said.
