HISTORY:Description 8

Archbishop Innokenti was famous for his rhetorical talent and for his erudition. He left many written works. The love of Christ’s servant for his flock became particularly fervent during the terrifying events of the Crimean war and the first defensive war at Sebastopol in 1854-55. The patriotic deeds of Archbishop Innokenti morally encouraged those who fought for their country. In recognition of the worthy service he vowed to his church and country, he was conferred several titles and a diamond cross. He died in 1857 in Odessa. Ever since, on the Name-Day of the parish Vigils have been celebrated in this place.
