St. Francis Xavier Cathedral, Grodno

St. Francis Xavier Cathedral (Belarusian: Кафедральны касцёл Святога Францішка Ксаверыя; Polish: Bazylika katedralna św. Franciszka Ksawerego w Grodnie) is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Grodno, Belarus. Originally a Jesuit church, it became a cathedral in 1991, when the new diocese of Grodno was erected.

The construction of the church started in 1687, when the city was part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The completed building in Baroque style was consecrated in 1705 to St. Francis Xavier. The monastery was dissolved in 1773 and the church became a parish one. The church survived World War II with no serious damage.
