The East Central Synod of Wisconsin continues to be involved Globally through our Companion Synod Relationship with the Western Diocese of South Africa.

  • The Death of a Great Man: Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela
        • Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, the father of the nation of South Africa, died on December 5, 2013 at the age of 95. Since our companion Synod is in South Africa several people from our synod have shared their feelings.

    We mourn with South Africa and the whole world the death of Nelson Mandela. What a great man, a great gift, and an amazing role model! To read more from Pastor Mark Ziemer ECSW Liaison to ELCSA-WD click here.
