Serving Mass

               

              A mass is served twice a day – in the morning at 6 am and evening one at 5 pm (at 6 pm in the summer). Specially prepared are the services on Sundays and on other big Christian celebrations, when songs and choirs singing fill the temples.  
            The monks are always willing to help with pilgrims’ requests: masses could be served for health and peace. Christenings are very common at the monastery. People come from all over the country and Europe to have their child christened in orthodoxy at this holy place. It is a custom for those rituals to be held at the ‘St. Nicolas’ Church in the South Yard.
Wedding are usually held on Sundays in the church ‘Assumption of the Holy Virgin’. The newlyweds arrive after having signed but also there are couples that come many years after they had originally done that.
 

Support us

The monastic fraternity constantly makes every endeavor to maintain the Cloister of the Holy Virgin at its best condition; this is the condition the cloister really deserves to be in, in order to welcome the thousands of pilgrims that visit it every year, truly beautifully and impress them.
The maintenance of the fund and the restoration of the many unique frescoes, inherited by the holy forefathers, could be quite costly and the monastery does not always manage to cover all the expenses. For this very reason, we turn for help to every Christian and to everyone who values the Bachkovo monastery, to contribute within their means and thus join our efforts.

Every charitable deed will be welcomed with honest gratitude and intercessory prayer in the name of Jesus Christ and the Holy Mother for wellbeing and success of the contributor and their family.
