More tales of visiting royalty! Immanuel Lutheran Church has welcomed a number of Swedish royals to its services before, including including Princesses Birgitta and Desiree of Sweden on November 13, 1960 and Prince Bertil of Sweden on November 21, 1965. It has also had as guest speakers two persons who have served as Bishop of Uppsala and Primate of the Church of Sweden – His Grace, Yngve Brilloth, on August 24, 1954 and Archbishop Gunnar Hultgren on January 16, 1972.
