Eurasia News

Sofia: Bulgaria’s largest religious denominations will hold public prayers “for peace, health and prosperity of the Bulgarian nation” between April 5 and 7, at the request of Bulgarian President Rossen Plevneliev.

On April 5, a number of mosques across the country included this in their Friday prayers, local media reported, with Christian churches of different denominations and Hebrew organisations set to join in during the weekend. Bulgarian Orthodox Church, the largest religious denomination in the country, will include the prayer in the Sunday mass on April 7.

Plevneliev made his appeal at a meeting with representatives of various religious groups, saying that it was prompted by the “despair and its reflection that we see in recent months.”
