Installation of a New Pastor

Within the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, red is the traditional liturgical color to be worn for installation service.  And look at all of the lovely red stoles! Within our church body, it is tradition for pastors within the local circuit to attend the installation service of a brother pastor. At this installation service, there were a total of seventeen pastors vested in red stoles! There is a wealth and abundance in the variety of pastoral stoles.
