DANIEL G. C. WU

PRIEST AND MISSIONARY AMONG CHINESE AMERICANS, 1956
 

Daniel G. C. Wu [1883-April 6, 1956], Pioneer Church planter for Asian Americans, came to the United States from China in 1907 and was ordained to the priesthood in 1913. He founded True Sunshine Chinese Mission and the Church of Our Savior, both in the San Francisco area. Wu’s ministry with Chinese immigrants helped form devout, worshiping communities and also eased their passage into the New World.
