Bishop Matthew Hu Xiande was born on Aug. 27, 1934. He studied at the seminaries in Ningbo and Shanghai between 1950 and 1958. He was sent for reform-through-labor from 1958 to 1965. After being rehabilitated in 1978, he was a farmer until 1984, when he went to study at Sheshan Regional Seminary in Shanghai. He was ordained a priest in 1985 and then served as a parish priest in the diocese.

On May 14, 2000, Bishop Joseph Ma Xuesheng ordained Bishop Michael He Jinmin as the Bishop of Ningbo and Bishop Hu as his coadjutor. Vatican-approved Bishop Hu succeeded as the ordinary upon Bishop Ma's death in 2004. Died on 25.09.2017.
