The Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus stands at the heart and center of Concordia Seminary. It is here that the faculty, students, staff, and members of the community hear of the Lord’s promises and receive His gifts. It is here where the community comes together united as the body of Christ to receive His true body and blood.
Saints Timothy and Titus were chosen as the namesakes for the chapel because they were the recipients of Paul’s three pastoral letters, and they describe the qualifications and desired characteristics of pastors and other church leaders. Formation as a seminarian begins with the reception of all that the risen Jesus has to offer. Apart from the reception of His gifts, there is no formation.
The Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus is a venue where seminarians are formed. The words and gifts of Jesus mold and shape seminarians into becoming the pastors Sts. Timothy and Titus were. In this Chapel future pastors learn how to lead and how to worship, lead the liturgy, preach, sing, and pray.
Additionally the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus is used for classes in the undercroft, private confession and absolution, personal devotions, and choir rehearsals. Chapel services are held every weekday at 9:35 a.m. during the academic year while classes are in session. All members of the seminary community and the city at large are invited to join with us in the worship of Christ the King.
