Due to the great public interest and to avoid unintentional mistakes and speculation, we are announcing the following:
Yesterday, Wednesday, 18 April, due to a health problem, His Holiness Patriarch Neofyte was admitted to a cardiology clinic at Tokuda Hospital in Sofia. According to information from the doctors on duty this morning, his condition is stable and he feels good. However, specialized medical teams continue to monitor it closely.
We, the bishops, the clergy and the laymen of the BOC, are praying for his complete rehabilitation, and we call on everyone who wants to join us in our prayer for the First Provident of our native Church.
