Bulgaria to mark 1,150 years since Christianisation with solemn service in Pliska

The solemn liturgy will be serviced in the open air at the ancient basilica of Pliska.

The service is scheduled to start at 9:30 a.m.

Today the Bulgarian Orthodox Church commemorates Boris I of Bulgaria at a ceremony also marking the 1,145th anniversary since the establishment of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church (March 4, 870) and 1,150 years since the Christianisation of the Bulgarian nation.

The reign of Boris I was marked with significant events that shaped Bulgarian and Slavic history, such as the Christianisation of Bulgaria.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.

Dear Friends,

Our website exists owing to your generous assistance, thanks to the funds donated by our beloved readers.

Please assist us in the continuation of our work.
