Bishop Stephen Yang Xiangtai was born in Wu'an City in northern China's Hebei province on Nov. 17, 1922. He studied at the major seminary in Kaifeng in the neighboring Henan province and was ordained a priest on Aug. 27, 1949. After serving as a parish priest in Kaifeng for a year, he returned to his hometown and preached in Wu'an for 16 years. During the cultural revolution, Bishop Yang was prosecuted.

He was ordained auxiliary bishop by his predecessor Bishop Peter Chen Bolu on Nov. 30, 1996 and appointed Bishop of Handan Sept. 17, 1999.
