Patriot and pioneer: Seo Sang-don, a hero of Korean Church – UCA News

A bust of Seo Sang-don greets visitors at the office of Daegu Archdiocese in Daegu, the third-largest city in South Korea and a Catholic stronghold. Archbishop Thaddeus Cho Hwan-kil unveiled the bust in 2011 as part of activities to pay tribute to Seo ahead of the 100th anniversary of his death. During the ceremony, the prelate hailed Seo as one of the pioneers who played crucial roles in the advent and growth of the Catholic Church in Daegu along with Bishop Florian Demange (1887-1938), a French missionary and the archdiocese’s first bishop.
