Born in Iowa, Fr. Churchill entered Maryknoll in 1920 and was ordained to the priesthood in 1927. During his time in China, he wrote many letters describing life on the Chinese mission. He was expelled from the country by the Communists and returned to the United States in 1952. He spent the time in the US teaching and managing the seminaries run by Maryknoll.
