      At a meeting on November 17th, the Holy Synod of the Bulgarian
      Orthodox Church chose a new hegumen of Rila Monastery. The Holy Synod
      decided to make the current dean of the Plovdiv Seminary – the Right
      Reverend Bishop of Adrianopol Evlogi. Archimandrite Sergii of Shipka
      Monastery became the new dean of Plovdiv Seminary.

      The non-clerical name of Bishop Evlogi is Bozhidar Stoyanov
      Stamboldzhiev. He is born on June 16th 1954 in Sofia. He graduates
      from St. Kliment Ohridski's Seminary in 1979. He takes his monastic
      vows in Rila Monastery immediately after graduation and becomes
