Rila Monastery has new father superior

Date: 20.11.2005

Yesterday the Holy Synod decided that Bishop Eulogius would be the new Father Superior of the Rila Monastery. The up-to-now rector of the Theological Seminary in Plovdiv will replace recently deceased Father Ioan. Archmandrite Sergii from the Shipka monastery will become the rector of the seminary.

Well-informed sources said that the appointment of Eulogius to the prestigious post of Father Superior of the Rila Monastery is a good solution of the delicate situation after Metropolitan Simeon of Western and Central Europe resigned for health reasons. It was Bishop Eulogius who was nominated for his post while Simeon himself insisted that he should be succeeded by his Vicar Bishop Tikhon. Because of his disapproval of Eulogius' candidature Simeon has withdrawn his resignation.
