      The iconostasis in the St. Innokenty of Irkutsk Church on the
      territory of the Embassy of Russia (Red Fangzi) has been renewed in
      time for the Feast of Nativity

      Among new icons, painted by graduates of the Iconography School of
      the Moscow Theological Academy especially for the temple of St.
      Innokenty of Irkutsk in Beijing, are the images of heavenly patrons
      China: the Albazin image of the Theotokos, icons of the Holy Martyrs
      of the Yihetuan uprising, St. Innokenty of Irkutsk, St. John of
      Shanghai, and St. Nikolai of Japan, the Equal-to-the-Apostles. Divine
      services in the Church of St. Innokenty of Irkutsk were restored in
      1997 and currently are served regularly.

      Restoration of the Dormition of the Theotokos temple also continues
      at Russia's Embassy in Beijing; it was long used as a garage (built in
      1901, this temple was intended to be a temporary one after the temples
      of the Russian Ecclesiastical Mission were destroyed in the Yihetuan
      uprising; it has been used as the embassy garage since 1954). After
      the temple is restored, it will house the History Museum of the
      Russian Spiritual Mission in China.
