The relics of the Batak martyrs have been returned to the Plovdov bishopric of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church. The remains had previously been in custody of the town council in Batak.

From the article:
Quote
With an earlier decision, the Batak Town Hall bestowed to the bishopric the "St. Nedeliya" church where the relics are kept in a special sarcophagus. The Church was a historical site, but is now also a place where mass can be served.

The Bulgarian Holy Synod made the decision to canonize the Batak martyrs in April, 2011.

Glory to God for all things!
"This is the Apostolic Faith, the Orthodox Faith, and the Faith of the Fathers. Having this wonderful treasure, let us preserve it, let us keep it, and let us also use it in such a way that this treasure becomes the victory of Christ in us and in His Church." ~ St. Severus of Antioch ~
