Bishop Paul He Zeqing of Wanzhou was born on March 17, 1968. The bishop (in the photo standing, on the left), coming from a peasant Catholic family, entered Sichuan seminary in 1989, the third intake group since Church activities began to revive in the late 1970s. He was ordained into priesthood in 1993 and has been the parish priest for Liangping and Zhongxian counties until he became auxiliary bishop of Wanzhou on Oct. 18, 2005. He was ordained by his predecessor Bishop Joseph Xu Zhixuan (in the photo on the right) with papal mandate. He was installed the ordinary on Dec. 13, 2008, five days after Bishop Xu passed away.

Previous Ordinaries:

  • Bishop Joseph Xu Zhixuan (1989-2008)
  • Bishop Matthias Duan Yinming (1949-2001)
  • Francesco Wang Tse-pu (1930-1947)
