I believe Lengerich was in Tecklenburg and more then likely 
Lutheran. The RC Church was very much against mixed 
marriages and often the result was a marriage in a 
Protestant church were the rules were more relaxed. If a 
priest was going sanctify the marriage he was would have 
insisted on both parents guaranteeing that any children 
would be brought up RC. That rule is still in effect. To 
circumvent it people sometimes simply switched.
