The seminary’s annual Call Service will take place at Grace Lutheran Church, 213 Linwell Rd, St. Catharines, on Saturday, 27 May 2017, 4.00pm. (Note the change of venue.) We heartily invite members of LCC, and especially friends and family of the students and award recipients, to attend this festive event.
Three graduating pastoral students (Andrew Cottrill, Kirk Radford, and Paul Schulz) will receive their first calls, pending completion of requirements. One vicar (Matthew Fenn) will also receive his placement. Rev. Wallace Schulz, former Lutheran Hour Speaker and father of a graduate, will be the guest preacher.
The service will also honour Mr Reg Tiegs, chairman of the LCC East District Board of Directors, and a member of Grace Lutheran Church, Oshawa, ON. 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 Mrs Carol Nagel with the Friend of the Seminary award. Mrs Nagel, a member of Faith Lutheran Church, Dunnville, ON, is the East District archivist and a long-time member of the Seminary Guild Executive.
Stay tuned for further news on a live broadcast of the service over the internet.
