two votive candelabra which stand before the altars of the
Blessed Virgin and St. Joseph, and are valued at $65.00 each,
were donated by Mrs. Geo. Fischer and Mirs. Geo. Starmann, the
latter also ordering from Max Schneiderhahn the well-known
sculptor of St. Louis, the artistic wood-carved statue of St. Anne
that is seen in the rear of the church, beneath the gallery, and
cost $150.00. Truly these improvements, made already in the
very beginning of Father Degenhardt's career at St. Boniface,
remind one of the era of Father Schaefermeyer, and if the former
pastor has been styled "The Beautifier of St. Boniface" the latter
can be truthfully called its "Renovator."

But not only the material element of St. Boniface is being
renovated; also the spiritual has been undergoing a similar
renovated; also the spiritual is undergoing a similar process.
The first important step in this direction was made in the
spring of 1911, when Father Degenhardt, obedient to the wishes
of the Holy Father, admitted to their First Communion all the
children, no matter of what age, who were able to discern this
Heavenly Food and to receive the same with profit. And no
more touching sight was ever seen at St. Boniface, than when
these little tots of 7 years, with hearts as pure as lilies and with a
devotion that showed itself in every feature, approached for
the first time to receive their Lord and God, whom, under the
careful training of parents and teachers, they had learned to love
so well. May the Infant Saviour ever protect His own dear little
ones, and in their childish innocence lead them always nearer to
Himself!

Another event of greatest importance in the spiritual life of
the parish, was the mission which was conducted by the Re-



ST. BONIFACE CONGREGATION 85

demptorist Fathers, Peter Maas and J. Nicholas Hecker from
Oct. 22nd to Nov. 2nd of 1911. The sermons during the first
week of this mission were delivered in the German language,
whilst English prevailed on the remaining days. The various
exercises of this mission, even the Mass at 5 o'clock, were at-
tended by throngs of people, most of whom also received the
Sacraments, there being 1,100 Communions on record.

A special course of sermons and conferences was held for
the children, some of whom on this occasion made their First
Communion, whilst all were invested with the five-fold scapular

Of all the exercises of the mission, there were especially
two that made a lasting impression upon all who witnessed
them. The first was the solemn consecration of the entire parish
to the Blessed Virgin, which occurred on Saturday evening, Oct.
28th, whilst the altar of Mary was aglow with hundreds of lights,
and the other was the closing ceremony, which began with a pro-
cession of several hundred men, who marched from the school
hall to the church, carrying the mission cross before them,
which was placed upon a beautifully decorated and illuminated
platform, around which they gathered after the sermon to swear
with uplifted hand new fealty to their Saviour who had shed His
very blood for them. Would that all retained that fervor which
was manifested on this occasion !

As an item of interest as well as of great importance during
Father Degenhardt's career at St. Boniface, we may also men-
tion the organization of the "Quincy Districtsverband" of Cath-
olic Societies, which was effected Wednesday evening, Nov. 22d,
after several preliminary meetings had been held, and which
unites for more effective work along social and other lines, the
various German Catholic organizations of Quincy. As the prin-
cipal means of attaining this end the constitution provides not
only for a monthly meeting of the executive board, but also for
general meetings of all the members at least four times a year,
during which, besides the business feature and the entertainment
which are not lost sight of, lectures and debates on pertinent
topics shall take place and be engaged in by all who may desire.
The first meeting of this kind was held at St. Boniface Hall Jan.
15th, at which Father Timothy Magnien, O. F. M., professor at
St. Francis College, and one of the prime factors in the organiza-
tion of the "Districtsverband," spoke interestingly and in-



86 DIAMOND JUBILEE



structively on its nature and import, followed by Father Degen-
hardt who gave his ideas on the "Catholic Gentleman." Since
then similar meetings have been held at all the German Catholic
parishes, and an appreciable amount of good, especially along
the lines of public morality, has already been accomplished. The
influence of the German Catholic "Districtsverband" was
strengthened, when a little later, and subsequent to an address
by Anthony Matre, national secretary, at St. Boniface Hall on
Dec. 30th, 1911, the English speaking societies also formed a
federation subsidiary to a state organization that held its first
convention here Sept. 29th and 30th, and joined hands with its
sister organization in Quincy to form the "Adams County Cath-
olic League." As yet this League is in its infancy, but when it
matures great things can be expected.

The year 1912 marks the Diamond Jubilee of St. Boniface
Congregation, an event that should not go by unnoticed, espe-
cially in view of the fact that already the Golden Jubilee,
twenty-five years prior, was so solemnly observed. To make the
necessary preparations, a meeting of the parish was called on
Sunday, Aug. 18th, after Vespers, at which an organization
was effected with Edward Sohm, Sr., as president, Jos. Fischer,
secretary, and George Fischer, Sr., as treasurer, and after the
general plan for the exterior festivities had been outlined, a
number of committees, listed elsewhere in this book, were ap-
pointed, who have been working day and night to make this the
grandest celebration ever witnessed at St. Boniface, the program
for which precedes this history.

And now that we have reviewed the past of the parish, let
us hope that the events recorded in these pages may be, as all
history should, a salutary lesson to us for the future ; warning us
to shun those shoals whereon our forefathers suffered shipwreck
before us, but stimulating us to emulate them in all that is
good; so that the future historian of St. Boniface, writing per-
haps for the parish Centenary, may have still greater achieve-
ments to relate than those recorded in this book, and the parish
may continue to merit the title,

"The Pearl of the Alton Diocese."

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH

OF THE PASTORS OF ST. BONIFACE.



FATHER BRICKWEDDE

First Pastor of St. Boniface,
Aug. 15th, 1837-March 16th, 1849.

Father August Florentius Brickwedde was born June 24th,
1805 at Fuerstenau, in the kingdom, now Prussian province, of
Hanover; educated at the College of Osnabrueck and later at the
Universities of Muenster and Bonn ; ordained priest Sept. 20th,
1830. Acted as assistant pastor in his home city from Sept. 20th,
1831 until April, 1837, when, with the permission of his bishop,
he set out for the New World, to devote himself to his country-
men who had preceded him and were sorely in need of priests.
Was pastor of St. Boniface from Aug. 15th, 1837, until Mkrch
16th, 1849; afterwards located at Mud Creek, (now St. Libory)
Clair Co., 111. ; took sick on a visit to St. Louis, and died before
he could reach home, at Belleville, Nov. 21st, 1865.

FATHER KUENSTER

Second Pastor of St. Boniface,
Ang. 15th, 185O-Sept. 15th, 1857,

Father Joseph Kuenster was born at Dueblich, in 1806.
Little is known of his early life, until his elevation to the holy
priesthood by Bishop Kenrick of St. Louis in 1841. His first
pastoral charge was at Belleville, where he was the first resident
priest and the organizer of St. Peter's Parish, and where we find
his signature, in the church records from Nov. 20th, 1842 to Sept.
24th, 1845. Whilst stationed at Belleville, Father. Kuenster at-
tended the missions at St. Libory (Clair Co.), Germantown
(Clinton Co.), Red Bud (Randolph Co.), Edwardsville (Madi-
son Co.) and Prairie du Long (Monroe Co). In consequence
of misunderstandings with his parishioners who even tried to
take his life, he was transferred to Teutopolis, where he re-
mained until August 15th, 1850, when he came to Quincy and
was in charge of St. Boniface until the day of his death, Sept.

1818, at Boke near Delbrueck, Paderborn, Germany. Ordained
priest Aug. 14th, 1843. Organized a parish at Niederweniger,
where he labored with apostolic zeal for 15 years, until he was
induced by Father Brickwedde on his visit to the Fatherland
to come to America, where he arrived Sept. 14th, 1858. Was
pastor of St. Boniface Church from Dec. 18th, 1858, to Sept. 23d,
1872, and vicar-general of the Alton Diocese since Sept. 1860 ;

he was invested in September 1873, and given the name Liborius.
After this he labored at Chicago (1875-1879), St. Louis (1879-
1882), and Joliet, returning to Quincy, Nov. 19th, 1886, where,
after a long and patiently borne illness he died at St. Francis

to labor with great success until his death which occurred
June 30th, 1892.



92 DIAMOND JUBILEE



FATHER JANSSEN

Fifth Pastor of St. Boniface,
Sept. 1st, 1877-Dec. Slut, 1879.

Father John Janssen, now Bishop of Belleville, was born on
March 3d, 1835,at Keppeln, Rhineland, Germany, and was edu-
cated in the parochial school of his native town, as also in
the High School at Caleas, Bishop College at Gaesdonck and in
Muenster. Was ordained priest at Alton, Nov. 19th, 1858,
by Bishop Juncker, became pastor of St. John's Church, Spring-
field, 111., and of the neighboring missions ; then the bishop's
secretary at Alton, and later vicar-general of Bishop Baltes.
On Sept. 1st, 1877, he came to Quincy as pastor of St. Boniface
which position he filled until Dec. 31st, 1879, when he was
recalled to Alton to act as pastor of the Cathedral Parish. At
the death of Bishop Baltes, Feb. 18th, 1886, he became admin-
istrator of the diocese of Alton, and after its division, Jan. 7th,
1887, also administrator of the new see of Belleville. On the 28th
of Feb. 1888, he was elected bishop of Belleville, where he was
consecrated at St. Peter's Cathedral on April 25th of the same
year, and where he continues to exercise the same gentle tact
in governing his great diocese, which made him loved and re-
spected by all when pastor of St. Boniface. May God spare
the venerable Prelate for many years to come, is the fervent
wish and prayer of the priests and people of Belleville and
of Quincy.

FATHER BRUENER

Sixth Pastor of St. Boniface,
Dec. 31st, 1879-Nov. lOth, 1887.

Father Theodore Bruener, the son of a poor cobbler of
Recklinghausen in Westphalia, Germany, was born May 27th,

at Muenster. Was ordained priest, Dec. 3d, 1859, and sent
to Gescher in the district of Coesfeld to take charge of a pri-
vate school ; was afterwards school teacher at Wadersloh, dis-
trict of Beckum, from the fall of 1862 to the fall of 1867, when

ed his appointment as the first pastor of St. Mlary's Church

FATHER DEGENHARDT

Eighth Pastor oi St. Boniface,
July 1st, 11)10

Father Henry B. Degenhardt was born at Alton, May 16th,
1855. He attended St. Mary's School of that city until the age
of 13, when he continued his studies for two years at the Ca-
thedral School. After this he was given private instruction,
first by Father Janssen, who was then vicar-general to Bishop
Juncker, and afterwards by Fathers Francis Lohmann and
John Moore, also of the local clergy. At the age of 16 he went
to St. Joseph's College at Teutopolis, but left again after
one year's time to go to Ruma in Randolph County, where
in those days a diocesan college was conducted, and where
after four years he completed his classical and philosophi-
cal courses. He then took up the study of theology at St.
Francis, Milwaukee, and after three years was ordained
priest by Bishop Baltes at the Alton cathedral on Aug. 15th,
1879. After celebrating his First Mass two days later at the
parish church of his boyhood days, he was assigned to the con-
gregation at Collinsville, where during the 31 years of his
pastorate he built a magnificent church, school and convent,
and accomplished still greater spiritual good among the mem-
bers of his flock, until the bishop, recognizing that "Macedonia
had become too small for Alexander," sent him, July 1st, 1910,
to succeed the late Dean Michael Weis as pastor of the more
important St. Boniface Congregation of Quincy, 111., where by
his kind and gentle ways he has made himself loved and re-
spected by all his parishioners, who sincerely hope that he
may remain in their midst to celebrate the centenary of the
parish.
