Celebration of eleventh anniversary of Patriarch of Bulgaria’s enthronement

The hierarchs of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church gathered on 23 February 2024 at the St. Tsar Boris-Mihail chapel to offer prayers for the health and well-being of His Beatitude Patriarch Neophyte of Bulgaria. Led by His Eminence Metropolitan Gregory of Veliko Tarnovo, the prayer service was attended by numerous Metropolitans.

The occasion marked the eleventh anniversary of Patriarch Neophyte’s enthronement, celebrated on 24 February. This date holds significant historical importance as it marks the day in 2013 when Metropolitan Neophyte was elected as the third Bulgarian Patriarch during the Patriarchal Election Church Council in Sofia. His enthronement took place later that same day at the Patriarchal Cathedral of St. Alexander Nevski.

The gathering of hierarchs in prayer not only commemorated this milestone in the Bulgarian Orthodox Church’s recent history but also underscored the unity and support within the Church for Patriarch Neophyte.
