Peter Regier

September 16, 2019 Volume 23 Issue 16 | In 1894, Anna Enss (1855-1914), left, and Peter Regier (1851-1925) moved their family from Prussia (now Poland) to Tiefengrund, Sask., where Regier was the founding leader of the Rosenorter Gemeinde and the Conference of Mennonites in Canada. His sermon collection includes “odd” names for sermons such as “Sexagesima.” Upon further research, we learn that this is the name for the second Sunday before Ash Wednesday in the Catholic and Lutheran denominations. Further research shows that Mennonites who have lived in Prussia, Russia and Canada have used the church calendar and lectionary to help organize their worship services for generations.
