With the advent of Soviet power, the cathedral in Bobruisk was closed. All valuables were taken away and since 1922 the church has not operated. However, closer to the beginning of the Second World War, services began to be held in the temple again, until 1964.

Then, a unique transformation awaited the building of the Bobruisk Cathedral. Organized within the walls of the temple pool. For this, the church was thoroughly rebuilt, and a 4-storey building was erected instead of a tower. (A similar fate awaited church in Bobruisk).
