The Center will host the Bulgarian Church, the Bulgarian School and events organized by the Bulgarian-American Cultural Center “Madara.” The Center is also looking to add other partners – for example, a hospitality entrepreneur who would be interested in opening a restaurant, cafe, or a bar within the Center’s premises serving Bulgarian food and beverages.
The “Sv. sv. Kiril and Methodii” Bulgarian school was founded in 1999 by Bulgarian patriots living in Boston with the aim of preserving the Bulgarian language and culture. The school’s programs include classes in Bulgarian language, literature, geography, and history.
The parents, teachers, and founders have managed to build an organization where hundreds of children have learned to read and write in Bulgarian and have become acquainted with the rich cultural and historic heritage of Bulgaria. The school is licensed by the Bulgarian Ministry of Education and is registered as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. For more information please visit their website.
The Bulgarian Church “St. Petka” was officially registered in May 2000 as a NPO organization according to Massachusetts law. The Bulgarian Saint Petka of Tyrnovo was chosen as a patron saint of the new church. Protorey Father Rumen Popbotev Pelovsky has been serving in the church since its registration.
Church Board: Violeta Zheliazkova, Rosa Andreeva, Tzveta Vassileva, Christina Mihaleva, Nikolay Nenov, Bogomil Sybchev

The Bulgarian Center is looking for a partner with experience in the restaurant or hospitality industries who might be interested in opening a café or a small restaurant on its premises. The café would offer Bulgarian recipes and provide catering for events hosted at the Center.
The Center also collaborates with food vendors who are actively engaged with the community:
Six Star Market is “a true local gem for Eastern European food”
“I never been to Bulgaria and most likely never will. I can only dream of this place by sampling some fine food from the Six Star Market”.
