St Vinzentius Church


Haseluenne was a parish from around 800 with a church in Lunne traceable to between 1107 and 1113. The church dates from the last third of the 15th century. The present-day steeple was built in 1860. The latest renovations were in 1976-77. Baptism and marriage records exist from 1640 with gaps in the marriages in 1678. Death records exist from 1648 with a gap in 1680.

Herzlake was originally part of this parish but separated from it around the 11/12th century. Several villages belonging to Haseluenne throughout the nineteenth century now are Filialkirchen. Flechum, referred to in 1276 as Vlechnen, has a chapel built in 1967 dedicated to St Franziskus. Westerloh has St Antonius von Padua, dedicated in 1948. Hoeven had a chapel first built there in 1383 which was replaced in 1651 and then again in 1856 by the present building.
