Concordia Seminary invites graduates, spouses, and widows of class years ending in “6” or “1” to the Alumni Reunion, to be held on the Seminary campus June 7-9, 2011. The theme for the Reunion will be “The Way We Were . . . Are . . . and Will Be: Under God’s Grace.” This year we are also pleased to invite those from the Class of 1962, many of whom began their studies with the Class of 1961, to join in celebrating their 50th graduation anniversary.
An informational brochure with a registration form will be mailed later this month to alumni and widows from these classes. It will also be available on the Seminary’s website (www.csl.edu) beginning in March.
At the Reunion there will be opportunities to tour the campus and see some of the recent changes, as well as time to reconnect with friends and members of the faculty and staff. Fellowship opportunities will include the opening cookout, as well as special class gatherings. Alumni are encouraged to connect with classmates beforehand and suggest to them that they attend to celebrate the many years of blessing God has given to Concordia Seminary graduates and His Church. The Alumni Relations office will be happy to assist with arrangements for individual class gatherings.
During the Jubilarian Service on Wednesday afternoon a special offering will be collected and dedicated to the John E. Meyer Memorial Alumni Book Endowment Fund, which provides books for first-year seminarians.
One of the highlights of the Reunion will be the banquet Wednesday evening with classmates seated together at reserved tables. Prior to the banquet, the Concordia Historical Institute will host a reception for alumni.
An optional tour will be offered on Thursday to the LCMS International Center, including the new Concordia Historical Institute museum, and to Lutheran Hour Ministries.
We are grateful to Lutheran Church Extension Fund for underwriting some of the expenses of the Alumni Reunion.
Advance registration is required. Please sign up on the registration form in the brochure and return the form to the Alumni Relations office by May 13, 2011.
