Batak Prepares to Celebrate the New Martyrs

Yesterday Metropolitan Nikolai of Plovdiv made a visit to Holy Resurrection Church in Batak, Bulgaria, to wash and anoint the relics of the Batak New Martyrs of the Ottoman Yoke recently glorified by the Bulgarian Orthodox Church. On Monday a ceremony will be held in Batak's main square to welcome an icon of the New Martyrs, after which the hierarchy of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church and guest hierarchs from abroad will celebrate the Divine Liturgy in honor of the New Martyrs.
