MOSAIC TV On Chinese Catholics in the Archdiocese of S.F.

KPIX television Channel 5, CBS Bay Area

San Francisco and the Bay Area are indeed a "mosaic," made up of persons, families, and communities of many races, languages, and religions. The Catholic church in San Francisco has always responded to the needs of immigrant groups. Today we have pastoral ministries that serve 18 distinct ethnic groups. And that, of course, includes Chinese Catholics. The first Chinese came here, like so many people from east, west, north, and south, in the Gold Rush. And despite intolerance, discrimination, and many difficulties, they have endured, thriven, and contributed enormously. And new waves of Chinese continue to arrive, to study, to work, or to live here permanently. On this show, we talk with Fr. Peter Zhai, SVD, a priest of the Divine Word Society, a native of mainland China and a cradle Catholic, who directs the Chinese Ministry of the Archdiocese. We learn a little history, catch up with what's happening now, and try to peer a bit into the future.
