Virgin Mary

On November 21 the Church honors the greatest liturgical feast in autumn – the Presentation of Mary. The Entry of the Most Holy Theotokos into the Temple reminds us how Joachim and Anne brought their three-year-old daughter to the Temple in Jerusalem, how she was brought up to love God and how she acquired her virtues.
In Bulgaria, Orthodox Youth and Family Day is also on November 21. On this day the family gathers and celebrates the feast. These two feasts send a beautiful message regarding the Christian morals and the beauty in human relations.

Saint Clement of Ohrid

On November 25, the Orthodox Church honors the memory of two beloved Christian figures - Saint Clement of Ohrid and Saint Clement of Rome. Saint Clement of Ohrid – the founder of the Ohrid Literary School, was a disciple of Saints Cyril and Methodius, a Bulgarian scholar and the first Bulgarian bishop who preached in the Old Bulgarian language. He is one of the Seven Apostles of Bulgaria and a patron saint of the biggest university in Bulgaria – Sofia University.
Saint Clement of Rome (or Pope Clement I) is one of the first bishops of former Serdica (present-day Sofia). On November 25 Clement and Clementina celebrate their name day.
