This year, Orthodox Christians attending Bachkovo monastery, will be able to participate simultaneously in two holidays - the day of the Holy Martyr George on 6 of may and the 25th day after Easter - Prepolvenie / to Pentecost / on the same day. On this day, because of 100-year old tradition believers bring a miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary from the temple "Sv.Blagoveshtenie" in Asenovgrad to Bachkovo, in memory of the assignment of the temple to the city from the monastery and after some pious visions of the Mother of God by Orthodox Christians.
Procession with the miraculous icon will arrive at the monastery 12'20pm at and will remain until 16'00pm.
Every one is welcome.
It will be distributed a traditional Corby - bean soup.

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.
