On October 13 at noon in the Riga Dom the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Latvia (ELCL) will consecrate two new bishops, Einārs Alpe and Pāvils Brūvers, who will begin their service in the newly created dioceses of Daugavpils and Liepāja. The largest of the dioceses, Rīgas archdiocese, will be under the supervision of the ELCL archbishop, Jānis Vanags, who will also continue to be the Church’s overseeing bishop.
Which bishops actually participated in the consecration of the two new bishops, and who is who on the pictures in the gallery?
