Dear alums


Dear alums,

The final days of the final quarter! After Commencement on May 19, life will slow down a little, but it won’t be long before August comes with the first semester of the revised residential curriculum.

We invite you to join us by live stream for a convocation from 4-4:30 p.m. (CDT) Wednesday, May 17, at The subject will be a quick look at the closing year and our hopes for the new academic year, which will begin, God willing, Aug. 25. The theme of the convocation will be “Concordia Seminary and Congregations.”

Recruitment for pastoral ministry: We’ve improved our administrative tracking of prospects, a good step forward, but the pool of potential recruits for ministry is too small. In the convocation we’ll share steps we’re putting in place to enlarge the pool. Please help by holding up in your congregation pastoral ministry as a wonderful and greatly needed vocation.

I hope you too can get more down time in the next month, refreshment for service to come! The Lord of the church continue to bless you and yours!


Dr. Dale A. Meyer, President
Concordia Seminary, St. Louis
