Bulgaria's President and Minister of Education to Save Bulgarian Church
(Sofia, Jan 9) - Bulgaria's President, Rossen Plevneliev and minister of
education, Sergey Ignatov, will save the Bulgarian church in Rome.
"Bulgaria's Head of State is quite worried with what is happening in the
presented by late Pope John II church Santi Vincenzo e Anastasio a Trevi
to the Bulgarian community in Rome. Due to this Bulgaria's president has
personally engaged himself to assist and help the Bulgarians get back to
the church after the scandals around Christmas, Varna metropolitan Kiril
Varnenski told the Standart.
He made it a point that Bulgaria's education ministry is also working to
resolve the problem, as the schooling of at least twenty Bulgarian
children at the Church's school has been suspended.
The Holy Synod of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church is going to officially
notify the Holy See of the raging scandal.
Shortly before the Christmas holidays, Romanian vicar George Balta
expelled about two hundred Bulgarian laymen from Santi Vincenzo e
Anastasio a Trevi Church, home to the Bulgarian Orthodox parish in Rome.
