Bishop Vincent Zhu Weifang was born in 1927 and entered the minor seminary in 1939. He graduated from the major seminary in Shanghai in 1952 and was ordained a priest two years later. He returned to preach in Wenzhou for a few months and was then sent for reform-through-labor from 1955-71. He was arrested again in 1982 for doing underground pastoral work. Upon his release in 1988, he began to work openly in Longgang and the cathedral parishes.

Bishop Zhu was appointed by Pope Benedict XVI in 2007. Belonging to the "open" community, he was secretly ordained in January 2009 and installed on Dec. 23, 2010 to become a government-recognized prelate. He died in 2016.
