Bishop's Installation - COVID-19 Precautions
The recent increase in the spread of the Delta Variant of COVID-19 is a matter of great concern, and the synod will be taking precautions to keep participants safe. At this time, the in-person event at Angelica Lutheran Church in Los Angeles is still scheduled to take place. Social distancing will be observed and masking will be required. Participants will be informed if they will need proof of vaccination to attend, and the synod will be following Los Angeles County protocols in this regard.

In the meantime, we encourage everybody to get vaccinated as soon as they can, both for their own safety and for that of their communities.

We recommend that you RSVP for the in-person Installation as soon as possible here.

If you have RSVP'd for the service at Angelica and decide you would rather not attend, please contact Samantha at shenderson@socalsynod.org and let us know!

You can also participate at a satellite site. A list of sites and RSVP instructions can be found here (keep checking back, as this list will be updated).
