On November 28, 2020, the Bachkovo Holy Monastery was honored with a new child! Borislav Iliev entered on the path of monasticism. Bishop Sionii of Velich, abbot of the monastery, performed the rite of haircut in conjunction with Hieromonk Stephen, brother of the Trojan monastery, Father Victor, the brothers of the monastery and announced by the spiritual and singing participation of an Orthodox choir.
Borislav have received in monasticism the name Ignatius, of the Venerable Martyr St. Ignatius of Stara Zagora.
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.
