Call Service 2008The seminary’s annual Call Service will take place at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, 213 Linwell Rd, St. Catharines, on Saturday, 31 May 2014, 4:00pm. We heartily invite members of LCC, and especially friends and family of the graduates, to attend this festive event.

As many as eight graduating pastoral students will receive their placements in congregations of Lutheran Church–Canada and the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod. Two of those candidates will be especially honoured to have their father, Rev. Rolf Preus, as preacher for the occasion. Rev. Preus’s father, Dr Robert Preus, was instrumental in founding this seminary as an extension of Concordia Theological Seminary, Ft. Wayne, in 1976, and spent many years as a visiting professor.

The service will also honour Rev. William Ney, one-time Secretary of LCC, ABC District mission executive, long-time parish pastor, and now also a LAMP missionary pilot in his “retirement”. The faculty and Board of Regents have chosen him to receive the Delta Chi (Servant of Christ) award, the seminary’s highest honour.

Musicians from the Kitchener-Waterloo area, including organist Michael Nieminen and the Lutheran Chamber Singers under the direction of Heidi Gallas will support the service. Graduating student awards will be given–though the recipients remain a closely-guarded secret!

“Stay tuned” for further news on a Livestream broadcast of the service over the internet.

  1. Greetings,
    It appears that Call Service 2014 will be very special. It may be special for our congregation back in Iowa as well, should God bless us with one of your students. Our question today is whether the sem will be able to livestream the service. We have “stayed tuned” as the post above asks, but I am be questioned more and more as call day approaches. As congregation chairman I don’t have all of the answers though some members feel I should.
    God’s blessings,

    Dave Wesener, congregation chairman

    1. The Livestream link will be posted later this week. With a free account we can only keep the link live for thirty days–including time to watch the recording after the event. So we don’t want to initiate it too soon. Thanks for watching.
