Mânăstirea Schitul Sfântul Mina Tg Neamţ – Saint Mina Tg Neamt Monastery

Istoricul manastirii:

Este situata in dreapta soselei Tg. Neamt-Pascani, la 5,5 km est de Tg. Neamt si la 26 km vest de Pascani. Cei 150 m de la sosea pana la schit se parcurg pe o alee asfaltata. Imediat la vest de incinta se desfasoara linia ferata Tg. Neamt-Pascani. Din 1997, trenurile personale opresc in fata schitului. La 2 km sud-est se afla gara Plaiesu si satul Dumbrava. In nord-vest, 2 km peste raul Ozana, este localitatea Bledea. Asezamantul este construit in campie, la circa 500 m peste linia ferata aflandu-se Dealul Boristei.

In 1933, manastirea Sihastria a cumparat aici teren de la niste familii din Tg. Neamt. A fost construita o cladire mica. Aici au existat stupina si animalele manastirii. Cladirea a ars in timpul razboiului, in 1944, si pentru inceput -in 1945 – vietuitorii de aici, printre care si Parintele Cleopa Ilie, au trait in bordei. Dupa razboi s-au cladit o bisericuta din lemn si o cladire cu cateva chilii, luand astfel fiinta un schit apartinand manastirii Sihastria. Schitul a functionat pana in 1960, cand a fost desfiintat in urma decretului 410/1959. Ultimul vietuitor a fost actualul staret al manastirii Sihastria, Arhimandritul Victorin. Calugarii au fost alungati, cladirile pentru chilii daramate, iar biserica a fost folosita ca magazie de cereale, apoi grajd pana in 1985, cand s-a daramat. In 1990, cand parintele Victorin, a avut initiativa reinfiintarii schitului, nici nu s-a mai cunoscut locul pe care au fost vechile constructii. Primindu-se binecuvantarea iPS Daniel, Mitropolitul Moldovei si Bucovinei, s-a inceput constructia chiliilor. Supravegherea lucrarilor i-a revenit credinciosului Gheorghe Moisei, din satul Rausesti, care a contribuit si financiar la ridicarea cladirii. In acelasi timp, s-a format si obstea schitului, din care in prezent si el face parte, ca monah. In 1992, Parintele Victorin, adevaratul ctitor al schitului, ajutat de obste, incepe constructia frumosului paraclis, care a fost si pictat, iar la 28 mai 1995 a fost sfintit. O mare contributie la ridicarea constructiilor schitului au avut-o credinciosii din zona.

Paraclisul este o constructie din zid, pe fundatie de beton, in forma dreptunghiulara, compartimentata in altar, naos si pridvor inchis. Nu are turla. Altarul spatios este luminat de o fereastra la est si alta pe zidul din nord. Catepeteasma din lemn de stejar, este sculptata, ca si stranele, de mesteri din Vanatori. Naosul foarte spatios este luminat de trei ferestre pe zidul din sud si alte trei pe cel nordic. Pridvorul are intrarea prin sud, pe o usa dubla de stejar, nesculptata. Este luminat de doua ferestre asezate la est. Toate ferestrele sunt din lemn, duble, cu grilaj metalic la mijloc. Plafonul in altar si naos este semioval, iar in pridvor plat. Pardoseala este din scandura, si acoperisul din tabla. Pictura in tempera a fost executata de Arhimandritul Bartolomeu Florea si de ucenicii sai de la manastirea Sihastria. Fatadele sunt simple, tencuite si zugravite in alb.

Clopotnita, construita din zid, cu doua etaje si gang de acces, este asezata la intrarea in incinta, intre cele doua cladiri din nord si est. La 15 m in fata pridvorului este cladirea mare, din zid, a chiliilor, compusa din parter si etaj, ambele cu cerdac avand grilaje si stalpi de sustinere din lemn de stejar. Pe stanga, la intrarea in incinta, este o cladire din zid de caramida, cu etaj, pentru trapeza, bucatarie, arhondaric si beciurile la subsol. La 25 m sud de paraclis s-a ridicat o cladire mica, din lemn, pentru aghiasmatar si altar de vara. In mijlocul incintei se afla fantana construita in 1991, imediat dupa ce manastirea Sihastria a reluat terenul. Constructiile gospodaresti sunt in incinta a doua a schitului, la 150 m de paraclis. Ambele incinte sunt imprejmuite cu gard din lemn, acoperit cu tabla. Pentru viitor s-a prevazut construirea unei mari biserici din zid de caramida.
