April 6: Feast Day of Daniel G. C. Wu, minister to Chinese immigrants in the San Francisco Bay area

Daniel G. C. Wu, devoted his ministry to serving Chinese immigrants in the San Francisco Bay area. A graduate of CDSP and ordained to the priesthood in 1912, he became the vicar at True Sunshine Chinese Mission (SF) and the Church of Our Savior (Oakland).

We give you thanks, loving God, for the ministry of Daniel Wu, priest and pioneer church planter among Asian-Americans, and for the stable worshiping communities he established, easing many immigrants’ passage into a confusing new world. By the power of your Holy Spirit, raise up other inspired leaders, that today’s newcomers may find leaders from their diverse communities faithful to our Savior Jesus Christ; who with you and the same Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
