Construction of the Church of Holy Trinity in the village of Ploca near Bosilegrad begins

7/11/2011

The cornerstone of a new church devoted to Holy Trinity, was consecrated and laid by His Grace Bishop Pahomije of Vranje. In this beautiful village, which is unfortunately remains more and more without people because of the great migration, for the first time an Orthodox church is being raised to a spiritual joy of the faithful people of the village of Ploca and all the area.

This holy and solemn rite was attended by mayor of the municipality of Bosilegrad Mr. Vladimir Zaharijev, directors of public enteprizes from the territory of Bosilegrad Predrag Trajkov and Strasko Apostolov, director of the House of Culture of Bosilegrad Ivajlo Stancev and other public personalities from cultural, economic and social life of Bosilegrad.

Bishop Pahomije was welcomed with joy, because one cannot remember if any of Bishops ever have visited the village of Ploca, surrounded by hills, where the winter begins on the beginning of November and ends at the end of May.

For all the present, the villagers of Ploce prepared a table of love.
