    • St. Peters Lutheran Church Zurich, Ontario

      In 1860 the Canada Synod was a conference of the Pittsburg Synod. In the minutes of the Pittsburg Synod, 1861 it is stated, "Immediately after the adjournment of Synod the Rev. J .N. Muenzinger was commissioned by the mission committee to the charge of the Hay Mission, Canada West. A few weeks afterward he was duly installed as pastor of the German Lutheran Church in Zurich by the brethren Hengerer and Koessmann." In the same minutes read, "St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Zurich, Hay Township is of wood, plainly but neatly built, dedicated on the 12th of August, 1860." This first church was located on Lot 34 of what is now John Street near the corner of Edward Street. The first burial, a child (Elizabeth Hill), took place on August 15, 1860. The first wedding (August Rauh and Catherine Burkholder) was performed on March 5th, 1861. The first class of 22 young people was confirmed on April 7th, 1861.
