Pastors Who Served Nieder-Monjou

Shortly after the founding of the Volga colonies a Reformed parish church was established at Nord-Katharinenstadt (north Katharinenstadt) and a Lutheran parish church was established at Süd-Katharinenstadt (south Katharinenstadt). The Reformed pastors of the Nord-Katharinenstadt parish served Reformed colonists in all of Beauregard's Wiesenseite colonies including Nieder-Monjou. The Lutheran pastors of the Süd-Katharinenstadt parish served Lutheran colonists in 21 Wiesenseite colonies including Nieder-Monjou.

Tsar Alexander I established the Imperial General Consistory (Reichs-General-Konsistorium) by royal decree on 20 July 1819. A further decree on 25 October 1819 established eight regional consistories including one at Saratov. Dr. Ignatius Feßler, a former Capuchin monk, was appointed Superintendent and spiritual head of the Saratov Consistory by the Tsar. He served in this capacity from 1819 until 1833.

Under Feßler's leadership the Volga hymnal (Wolga Gesangbuch) and a common liturgical manual for worship services which allowed for minor variations to satisfy both Lutherans and Reformists were introduced.

Feßler also instituted other reforms. On the Wiesenseite there were only four Lutheran parishes and one Reformed parish serving 40 colonies with population of 21,000. Beginning in 1820 the Lutheran and Reformed Volga colonists were no longer served by separate pastors. From 1820 Nieder-Monjou was served only by pastors from the Süd-Katharinenstadt parish.

An edict signed by Tsar Nicholas I on 28 December 1832 divided the Russian empire into three Evangelical administrative groups: the Grand Duchy of Finland, the Kingdom of Poland, and the Imperial General Consistory. The Imperial General Consistory was further divided into 3 city and 5 district consistories. The regional consistory at Saratov was transferred to the Moscow district consistory by the Ordinance of 1832. All of the Volga colonies fell under this new Moscow district consistory.

Nieder-Monjou remained in the Süd-Katharinenstadt parish until 1905. Both the Nord-Katharinenstadt parish and the Süd-Katharinenstadt parish survived until 1905. In September of 1905 the Nord-Katharinenstadt and Süd-Katharinenstadt parishes were combined into a single Katharinenstadt parish and parish churches were formed at Paulskoje and Boaro. The Paulskoje parish pastor served the four churches at Paulskoje, Fischer, Beauregard, and Nieder-Monjou. The Paulskoje parish pastor held church services at Nieder-Monjou once a month. The remainder of the time church services were conducted by the schoolmaster (Schulmeister). In the early twentieth century the Paulskoje parish had 11,500 members.

Check that old document which was brought from Russia (Tauf-Schein, Erinnerung an den Tag der Confirmation, Trau-Schein, or perhaps a Parochial-Schein) and you will find the signature of one of these pastors.
