News: Declaration of the monastery brotherhood

In connection with disseminated on the internet petition against the Plovdiv bishop Nikolay, the management of the Bachkovo monastery feels obliged to state the following:
The accusation against Bishop Nikolai in the first point of the petition is not true. The monastery funds the Plovdiv Seminary according to the decision of the Holy Synod from 2010. Plovdiv Bishopric sends the appropriate documents for costs at the beginning of each month and the monastery gives  the relevant amounts.
Bachkovo monastery distanced himself from all claims and accusations placed in that petition, and believes that such activities are not in favor of spiritual peace of Christian believers in the country and contribute nothing to our salvation in Christ, but rather they are able to take away believers in the arid plains of haughtiness.

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.
