The Fall Lutheran Anglican Gathering will be held September 26th through 28th, 2023 at Temple Gardens and Spa, Moose Jaw, SK. We are excited to announce that we will be having two guest speakers this year from our companion Synod in Argentina, Mercedes L. García Bachmann and Wilma Rommel.
Rev. Dr. Bachmann has a PhD in Old Testament from the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC). She taught for almost twenty years at the ecumenical school of theology in Buenos Aires (ISEDET) and has one published book, Women at Work in the Deuteronomistic History (SBL, 2013), and several articles and book chapters. Currently she directs the Institute for Contextual Pastoral Studies for the United Evangelical Lutheran Church (Argentina-Uruguay) and teaches online for her alma mater and for other schools.
Rev. Wilma Rommel was elected President of the United Evangelical Lutheran Church (IELU), Argentina and Uruguay on April 24, 2021.
Rev. Rommel is the first woman to hold the office of president in the IELU.
