Church: Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception ¸t¥ÀµL­ì¸o¥D±Ð®y°óDescription:Going back to history, the Cathedral was first located at Wellington Street in Central. Unfortunately it was destroyed by fire and burnt to the ground in 1859, at the time the extension work was almost completed.  When it was redeveloped in 1860, as the neighboring area was considered undesirable for religious gathering and in view of the increasing Catholic population, Bishop Raymondi, Hong Kong¡¦s first Vicar Apostolic, then made a decision to build a new church.  The site at Caine Road was then acquired in 1881 to build the current Cathedral.  The old site at Wellington Street was then demolished by the new buyer. The inaugural mass for the new Cathedral was held on 7 December, 1888, on the eve of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.For more information, please visit
