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.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
