Father Innokentii Seryshev was born on 14 August 1883 in the village of Bol'shaia Kudara, in the Trans-Baikal region. In 1902 he married Ekaterina Fedorovna Bondarenko. From 1906 to 1909 he was the village priest in Doronino, and from 1910 to 1913 in Shergol'dzhin, both in the Trans-Baikal region. It was in this period that he became interested in Esperanto, a language he spent most of the rest of his life promoting. From 1917 to 1919 he was a member of the board of directors of the Soiuz kul'turno-prosvetitel'nykh obshchestv Altaiskogo kraia.
