The opening service for the 46th academic year at Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary will take place on Sunday, 12 September, 4:00pm, in the seminary chapel.
Seating will be limited to about 45 people, and so we ask that you RSVP with this online form. You may also e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 905-688-2362 ext. 21. The service will be live-streamed from our YouTube channel.
During the service Rev. Dr Thomas Korcok will be officially installed as Associate Professor of Theology. Dr Korcok, a CLTS graduate (1987), taught in the fall semester 2020 as a visiting professor. He accepted a call to join the faculty in November 2020 and has been teaching at the seminary since then. His installation has been delayed until now because of limitations on public services. We are pleased to be able to present him publicly to the church, bless him with God’s Word and prayer, and commit to him this solemn responsibility.
Rev. Robert Willie, emeritus pastor in the West Region, will be honoured with the Emeritus Crucis award. We are pleased that he will be joining us in person, with his wife and daughters. Other academic awards earned by students will also be announced.
If you cannot attend, please pray for the students as they begin their studies, for the seminary faculty that they may be faithful in their calling, for the dedicated staff who support them, and for God to raise up benefactors for our seminary whose gifts will ensure that this important work continues. If you wish to make an offering, see the options available on our website.
