A total of 39 youth attended Vocatio at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis from June 27-July 2, 2009. They participated in Bible studies, worship, prayer and discussion, and visited various ministry sites in the St. Louis area to hear presentations by people currently serving in church vocations.
During Vocatio, admission representatives from six Concordia University system schools and Valparaiso University participated in a college fair. Aside from each representative being available to answer questions at their booth, each one had a few minutes to introduce their schools and its strengths. This opportunity allowed the Vocatio guests to have a better understanding of what each school has to offer.
One Vocatio participant commented, “Laid-back yet serious approach to church vocation, especially in the Lutheran sense. [Vocatio] definitely opened my eyes to many more facets of this work.”
The 2010 Vocatio will take place June 2010. For more information on Vocatio, contact the Admissions Office, Concordia Seminary,801 Seminary Place, St. Louis, MO 63105. Pictures of the event are available on the Concordia Seminary Web site at www.csl.edu.
