After the Reformation (1581), The protestant churches took over the catholic possessions. Especially in the religion the protestant were very fanatic. For the catholics the celebration of masses was almost impossible. Many pastors refused converting to protestantism and continued secretly to pursue the pastoral care.

Jesuit Fathers in Heino

It was the Jesuit Fathers from Zwolle who took responsibility on the pastoral care in Heino. From 1581 to 1685, the Catholics in the area served by the Jesuit order. They came together in secret, usually a quiet, secluded spot outside city or village. Through the years the Jesuits were celebrating the mass in places like the Zuthemerweg, the Colckhof, later on the Brink Lierderholthuis.

The missionaries found a solid foothold in the Spieker Spieker Lierderholthuis.Het Lierderholthuis, consisting of a house and a barn converted into a church, was owned by Mr and Mrs Henry Arnold of How to Hoickink, master hunter, governor of King William III and Mary Elizabeth of Boecop. They delivered Henricus van der Gracht permission to settle on the Lierderholthuis. The mission reports of the Jesuits Van der Gracht is a hardworking, diligent and indefatigable missionary named. Day and night he was in the back and turned all his care to poor, sick and infirm. Both the peasantry to the nobility as a facilitator Jesuit pastor must have been, a true pastor to the growing number of Catholics in and around Raalte, Heino and Lierderholthuis. The apostolic vicar Peter Codde spent in his 1701 report detail at the station Raalte-Heino, where the mission was Lierderholthuis center. Codde described it as a broken stekt marshy area where very many Catholics lived on after five or six noble families, belonged to the peasantry. With hard work the farmers were a sober existence. Codde hopes that the station would be divided in half worden.Maar an ever-increasing antipathy of Civil and Judicial authorities against the Jesuits prevented this plan.

After the death of Father Philip van Gorp, who presided over the 1726-1748 Lierderholthuis, came to an end the activities of the Jesuits as pastors in rural Salland. An important event took place in 1776. On March 28 of that year and served the Catholics of Heino Lierderholthuis in chivalry and Cities of Overijssel an application for leave to have its own pastor. They argued that from 1685 Jesuietenmissionarissen had served as pastor at the Lierderholthuis under Heino. The construction of a church and barn on the property under Heemen Raalte in 1750 moved the priest to Raalte. From there he served four churches in Luttenberg barn, Raalte, and Heeten Lierderholthuis. This meant that the priest only every fourteen days many Catholics in the area and Heino Lierderholthuis could speak again. Our own pastor was easy, because the priest had to Raalte is one of two chaplains. They suggested a chaplain in Raalte to place and Lierderholthuis the establishment of a priest should be allowed. Knighthood and Cities of Maharashtra had raised no objection, so on October 31, 1776 GH Thalen was appointed first pastor of the station Lierderholthuis / Heino. The station would Lierderholthuis to 1858 of the Catholic pastoral center in the region that year the parish blijven.In Heino detached from Lierderholthuis. Five years earlier in 1853 was the Catholic Church organization in the Netherlands again from Rome officially established. This is called "the restoration of the Episcopal hierarchy" mentioned. Existing stations were converted into parishes. Thus, by Mgr. J. Zwijsen, Archbishop of Utrecht, on February 20, 1858 the parish to Our Lady Ascension Heino established. Simultaneously, the boundaries of the new parish established. The parishes of Lierderholthuis, Hoonhorst, Luttenberg Raalte and Heino had to cede territory.

High Lugt masters of the first church to church government. The church had the task with zeal and fidelity of all interests to represent the parish.
