Dear Beloved Members of the ELM Community,
It is with great joy that I extend an invitation to you to attend ELM receptions celebrating the installations of Bishop Megan Rohrer (they/them) and Bishop Brenda Bos (she/her), both Proclaim members and the first publicly-out trans and lesbian Bishops, respectively, in the ELCA.
The reception celebrating Bishop Rohrer will take place Friday, September 10th at 7:30pm at St. John the Evangelist in San Francisco located at 1661 15th Street, San Francisco, CA in their outdoor courtyard.
The reception celebrating Bishop Bos will take place Sunday, September 12th at 12:30pm at St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Los Angeles located at 3651 Vermont Ave, Los Angeles, CA in their outdoor courtyard.
Due to the continued risk of the COVID-19 virus, in particular the Delta Variant, our planning team is taking every precaution. Attendees are required to show proof of vaccination or the negative results of a recent COVID-19 test. These events will be outside where transmission is less prevalent, but masks are encouraged while not eating or drinking. A light fare of prepackaged food and drink will be served.
