Day 1 - Monday 21 July

A flag with the Assembly logo, raised against the backdrop of a bright and sunny mid-morning sky, marked the start of the opening day of the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) Tenth Assembly.

In raising the flag, Winnipeg Deputy Mayor Lillian Thomas paid tribute to Lutherans for their efforts to ensure social justice, peace and charity as tenets of their faith.

Ceremony and color marked the Opening Eucharist of the LWF Tenth Assembly. The Lutheran worship service, which was held at the Roman Catholic St Boniface Cathedral, started with a dramatic procession from the banks of the Red River, where almost 700 Assembly participants had gathered for a service of affirmation of baptism.
