WINNIPEG – Guests from several countries will attend Lutheran Church–Canada’s 10th national convention at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in June. The event will welcome representatives from confessional Lutheran church bodies in Australia, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, and the United States.

“Our Canadian church deeply cherishes the relationships we have forged through the International Lutheran Council (ILC) and through our own mission work,” noted Rev. Dr. Robert Bugbee, President of Lutheran Church–Canada and Vice-Chairman of the ILC. “We are honoured to have them join us and share with us their vibrant Christian witness.”

The international guests will address the convention at various times throughout the weekend and participate in all aspects of the gathering.

Leaders of other ILC churches have sent written greetings which will be distributed in the daily Action Plan.
