The history of the church in Hemer began even before it was first mentioned in a document of 1072. Next to the last building of Haus Hemer, the Vituskirche was built at the end of the first millennium, which belonged to the Diocese of Cologne and the parish of Minden. However, the angel in Himer sought to establish an independent church, which the bishop realized in 1122 by appointing the Fytuskirch in Niederheimer as a parish church. In the centuries that followed, the church was expanded several times until it accommodated about 200 people. At that time it belonged to the dean’s office in Attendoorn. The name day of the church’s patron saint, Vitus, was celebrated with special reverence. The Vitus exhibition was held regularly until the first half of the twentieth century. The Vitus Church was demolished in 1818 and in 1820 a new Evangelical church was built on Mount Iberg.

Over the long history of Himeran, a great variety of Christian churches of various denominations, groups, societies and religious institutions have arisen from this. Today, these congregations include Hemer Evangelical Lutheran Congregation, Ehmert Evangelical Chapel, Deilinghofen Evangelical Chapel, and the Pastoral Association of Catholic Groups at Hemer St. Evangelical Christians – Baptists and Christian Youth Associations (CVJM).

But the religious diversity and life of Heimer is not yet complete. Because in Hummer there are other religions such as Judaism or Islam, which is represented in the city of Filsenmeer by the Turkish Muslim community.

Homeland Day and City History on Wednesday, May 11

Himmer can glimpse a long, eventful history with ups and downs – from the first documentary mention in 1072 to the time when Himmer belonged to the Mark County with its castles (Edelburg, Burg Clausenstein), farming community, mining, and early stages. Industrialization turned into a city in 1936, to the world wars with their grave consequences (Stalag VI A) and to Hemer as we know it today, after the reform of the municipal area in 1975.

All these facts and much more are part of the exciting history of the city, so there is no doubt that it will be addressed in the “Day of the Fatherland and the History of the City”. Thanks to the decades-old commitment of the Hemer Citizens and Homeland Association (BHV; founded 1923), the city’s history can be experienced on Wednesday, May 11.

Nature Day Thursday 12 May

Climate, environment and nature are the much discussed topics nowadays. Whether at school, at work, in our spare time or even during small talk – nature loves to be the center of attention. Not all of us understood that we had to change our behavior and conserve resources. Appreciating and respecting our environment is one of the greatest and most important tasks that accompany us all in daily life.

On the other hand, it is good to know that more than half of the urban area of ​​6,755 hectares is dedicated to forest areas (3,650 hectares). Together they store about 36,500 tons of carbon dioxide. Based on an average car’s CO2 emissions of about 1.5 tons, the Hemer City Forest pegs emissions of more than 24,000 cars annually.

On the other hand, there is a lot to discover and learn about on Nature Day on Thursday 12 May. Practice and learn what sustainability means early on, which is why school children in Himer are also and especially taken into account in the program items for today.

The Energy Transition Learning Experience is a nationwide educational and informational event for schoolchildren in grades 5-10, funded by the German Federal Environment Foundation. As part of an interactive multimedia production, young people are entertainingly attuned to one of the most pressing themes of the future: the gradual transition to renewable energies. At Europaschule am Friedenspark (Comprehensive School), you will fly about 90 minutes with the program on Thursday, 12 May. But students of Woeste-Gymnasium and Hans-Prinzhorn-Realschule will also be able to enjoy it, but for reasons scheduling already on Monday 9 May.
