The Beginnings of Leipzig

"In April, 1905 the first German Catholic immigrants left the USA and head for Canada. After almost twenty days of travels and adventure they reached their destination which was approximately 3miles north and 2miles west of the present site of Leipzig."

Within a few days another group of settlers arrived with Fr. Theodore Schweers. The date was May 11, 1905. On May 12, the settlers, 11 men and 2 women, celebrated a Mass of Thanksgiving. That day became "Our Birthday". That day marked the beginning of the Leipzig Community. By the end of the summer some 30 families had filed on homesteads and taken up residence from as far north as Cavell to as far south as Handel; from as far east as Landis to the edge of Tramping Lake. Most of these families settled in an area around what was to become "Pascal". The settlement was named Pascal in honour of Bishop Pascal, Bishop of Prince Albert who was gracious enough to give this new area his Spiritual guidance." Taken from Leipzig 1905-1980>

First Group of Settlers

Joseph Gartner, Alois Stark, Vincent Schweda, Dominic Mueller, Jakob Mueller, Melchior Schermann, Wenzel Suchan, August Franke, Jacob Gerlinsky, John Novakowsky, John Salewsky, Michael Huber, John Schmidt, Stefan Leidl, George Reninger, Simon Stohr, and Heinrich Nestmann.
