The seminary’s annual Call Service will take place at Grace Lutheran Church, 213 Linwell Rd, St. Catharines, on Saturday, 28 May 2016, 4.00pm. We heartily invite members of LCC, and especially friends and family of the students to attend this festive event.
One or two graduating pastoral students will receive their first calls, pending completion of requirements. One vicar will also receive his placement. Rev. Alan Bauch, a CLTS alumnus and pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church, Lockport, NY, will be guest preacher for the occasion.
The service will also honour Mr Stephen Klinck, managing director of Lutheran Hour Ministries–Canada. The faculty and Board of Regents have chosen him to receive the Delta Chi (Servant of Christ) award, the seminary’s highest honour.
The seminary will also recognise Dr David Goicoechea with the Friend of the Seminary award. Dr Goicoechea, a retired professor of philosophy at Brock University, has tirelessly supported Concordia on the campus where it resides.
Stay tuned for further news on a live broadcast of the service over the internet.
