Archpriest Alexander Abiduyev, a cleric of the Irkutsk diocese, delivered the icon to Hong Kong and shared the celebration with the clergy and faithful of the Hong Kong parish.

St Innocent is the heavenly patron of the Orthodox Church in China. He was the first Orthodox bishop to be assigned to lead the Russian Mission in Beijing, and several churches in China have been consecrated in the name of St Innocent of Irkutsk.
