Death of China-Appointed Ordinary of Guangzhou

China-appointed Bishop Joseph Ye Yinyun of Guangzhou, Guangdong Province in south coastal China died on 13 March 1990, aged 88.

Bishop Ye was a member of the government-sanctioned Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association’s standing committee, according to Father James Lin Bingliang, bishop designate of Guangzhou, elected on 15 February.

Father Lin told UCA News 19 March that Bishop Ye suffered from diseases including failure of the kidneys, brain and lung problems

He said the Requiem Mass for Bishop Ye, to be held on 7 April, would be presided over by China-appointed Bishop Cai Tiyuan of Shantou, about 356 kilometers east of Guangzhou, provincial capital of Guangdong Province.

Bishop Ye became the government-appointed ordinary of Guangzhou diocese in 1981.

The late Bishop Ye was ordained priest in 1934 and was appointed ordinary of Huiyang diocese, 116 kilometers southeast of Guangzhou City, by the government-sanctioned Church in 1962. Between 1931 and 1934, he studied at the former Regional Seminary for South China in Hong Kong, now the Holy Spirit Seminary.

Father Lin said Ascension Sunday, 27 May, has been fixed for his consecration as bishop. He is now parish priest of Sacred Heart Cathedral. He also said other arrangements, including the possibility of having an auxiliary bishop, will be made after Bishop Ye’s funeral.

Father Lin (77) said he will continue to contribute to the diocese despite his old age. Ordained priest in 1941, Father Lin had also been a student at the former Regional Seminary for South China.

There are about 4,400 Catholics in the Guangzhou diocese with seven priests, 10 sisters and 14 sister novices.
