On January 11, 2015, the Orthodox Community of Hong Kong gathered in Stanley for the celebration of the service of the Blessing of the Waters and the tossing of the Holy Cross into the sea. Metropolitan Nektarios of Hong Kong and South East Asia presided over the service.

The retriever of the Cross was the young Christos Economos who received a small icon of Saviour Christ as a blessing by Metropolitan Nektarios.
