      Bulgarian Patriarch to Meet with Putin during 1st Trip Abroad
      Society | July 19, 2013

      The first visit abroad of the new Bulgarian *Patriarch* *Neofit* will be
      in *Moscow*, the Bulgarian Orthodox Church informs.

      The *Patriarch* is to lead a delegation which will take part in the
      celebrations of the 1025th anniversary of the *converting* of *Russia*
      to *Christianity*, the so-called "*Baptism* of *Russia*."

      The delegation will be in *Moscow* between July 23 and 30. The
      invitation has been extended by the *Moscow* Patriarchy.

      During the visit, *Neofit* will meet with Russian *Patriarch* *Kiril*
      and the Presidents of *Russia*, *Vladimir Putin*, and of the *Ukraine*,
      *Viktor Yanukovych*. He will take part in the *liturgy* in the "Christ
      the Savior" church in the Russian capital and in the following reception.

      The Bulgarian *Patriarch* will also participate in a solemn *liturgy*
      and prayer in *Kiev*.

      After *Patriarch* Maxim passed away in November 2012, on February 24,
      2013, Ruse Metropolitan *Neofit* was elected *Patriarch* of the
      Bulgarian Orthodox Church by the Holy Synod's national church council.
