The Christmas liturgy at the Bachkovo Monastery was led by the Bishop Sionii the abot of the monastery, in co-operation with the brothers of the monastery and the prayerful participation of the Orthodox people.
The Right Reverend read the Patriarchal and Synodal Christmas Message to the Christ-loving Bulgarian people, adding to his personal and the monastic brotherhood greetings and wishes for the holiday of Christmas, good health and inseparable communion with Christ!
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.
