Reminiscing: Tribute to Donaldina CameronFellowship and
and Celebrating 120 Years of Donaldina Cameron’s Ministry
Saturday, March 21 at 10:30 am
Donaldina Cameron (1869-1968) of Pasadena began her
service with the Occidental Mission of the Presbyterian Church 120
years ago. For four decades she rescued over 3,000 Chinese girls
from sex slavery in San Francisco Chinatown (which was essentially a
“bachelor society” because of the Chinese Exclusion Act, 1882-1943).
During that time she frequently came to Southern California to speak
in churches as Rev. Robert Freeman of Pasadena Presbyterian Church
was chairman of the committee which supported her work. In our
Freeman Chapel there is a stained glass window depicting Miss
Cameron, a policeman and a girl. Today the Donaldina Cameron House
of San Francisco is a center for youth work and family services. To
celebrate the 120th anniversary of Miss Cameron’s ministry, Cameron
House (with Ms. May Leong, Director) will hold this event during the
week of PPC’s 140th anniversary celebration. This event in Gamble
Lounge is open to all. Please RSVP by March 7th to Josh Chuck at
firstname.lastname@example.org to make reservations for lunch.
