This is a photograph of Frs. Dietz [left] and Paschang [right]. There is a small and rounded gate behind them.; Born in New York, Fr. Dietz came to Maryknoll in 1915 and was ordained to the priesthood on September 11, 1916. He took his Perpetual Oath to the Society in 1930. He was assigned to Kongmoon in 1920 and in 1930 he became the Society Superior of the mission. He was a delegate to the first General Chapter of the Society in 1929. In 1932 he was named to the Synodal Commission in Peking. In 1937 he became Procurator General in Rome. He was active in teaching until his death. -- Bishop Paschang was born in Martinsburg, MO. He entered Maryknoll in 1917 and was ordained in 1921 and assigned to Kongmoon. He was later named Vicar Apostolic of Kongmoon and was consecrated bishop in 1937. When the Japanese invaded South China they exiled him to Macau, but he escaped to Free China and later returned to Kongmoon.
