Bishops take HIV test

In response to the development of an HIV/AIDS strategy, the ELCA Conference of Bishops agreed that all its members will be tested for the diseases during its March meeting.

“We wanted to do something concrete to help amplify that initiative,” said Bishop Paul Stumme-Diers of the Greater Milwaukee Synod.

ELCA Presiding Bishop Mark S. Hanson called it an “act of accompaniment and encouragement for ELCA members and global companions.”
