Vocatio: An event for high school students exploring God’s calling and direction
June 24-29, 2017
Find God’s calling for your life
Vocatio is a fun opportunity for high school students entering grades nine through 12 to participate in Bible study, worship, and discussion about vocation. This five-day retreat on Concordia Seminary’s campus encourages participants to find God’s calling for their lives through studying theology, learning from Seminary professors, and engaging in thoughtful conversation. Throughout the week, Vocatio participants engage in several different exciting opportunities, including:
Students participate in a Servant Event. Past events have included work at St. Louis area congregations and the Saxon Lutheran Memorial in Frohna, Mo.
Participants attend daily chapel services and Sunday morning worship in the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus on the Seminary campus.
Students learn about the Concordia University System and the programs they offer to prepare students to do Christ’s work in the world.
St. Louis attractions
Participants also have the opportunity to attend an event in the St. Louis area, such as a St. Louis Cardinals game or the Muny outdoor musical theater.
Check-in begins at noon on the first day. Check-out will be at 9 a.m. on the last day of the event. The Seminary will not be able to provide for early arrivals or late departures. During the event, all participants will be housed on campus. All activities and meals during Vocatio will be provided by Concordia Seminary.
Vocatio registration is limited to high school students entering ninth through 12th grades.
A $150 registration fee to attend is the only charge for high school students, in addition to travel costs. Participants are responsible for their own transportation, but scholarships are available to ensure that travel costs do not prevent students from attending. Please contact the admissions office in you would like to apply for a scholarship. If arriving by air, bus, or train, please provide your full itinerary as the Seminary provides complimentary shuttles from the airport, bus, and train terminals.
