Today, 28.03.2017g. after a short illness, pass away the brother of the Bachkovo monastery, f. Simeon.
Born in 1942. in the town of Pazardzhik, hi entranced into the monastery as a novice in 1966 and taking the vows in 1967. Father Simeon performed his monastic obedience as sexton of the main church of the monastery for more than forty years diligently. Extremely accurate and responsible, hi also will remain in our memory for its kind-hearted, patience and simplicity of soul, which fulfill the Savior's words: "poor in spirit will inherit the kingdom of God."
God rest his soul and calm himself in the realm of the righteous!
The funeral service will take place on 30.03.2017 Thursday, in the main church of the monastery at 11'00 a.m.
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.
