Newly Installed Bishop Gerald Mansholt

Bishop Gerald Mansholt was installed as the Bishop of the East Central Synod of WI on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Appleton, WI. It was a wonderful day filled with beautiful, uplifting music, outstanding liturgy, and a wonderful message from ELCA Presiding Bishop Eaton. The first bishop of the ECSW, Robert Herder, presented the Pectoral Cross to Bishop Mansholt which was very meaningful to many in our synod. It was a day of celebration as many pastors, ecumenical and Full Communion Partners, colleague bishops, familyNewly Installed Bishop Gerald Mansholt and friends all gathered to support and celebrate Bishop Mansholt. Bishop Dithale and his wife Margaret from our Companion Synod in the Western Diocese of South Africa arrived on Friday and participated in the service too (View Pictures).
