High school men and women interested in attending Concordia Seminary, St. Louis are invited to Vocatio June 19-24 on campus. This free, weeklong retreat provides prospective students the opportunity to explore God’s calling and direction for them as they experience Seminary life.

Group sessions will focus on thoughtful conversation about the Lutheran faith, aspects of vocation and the call to pastoral or diaconal ministry. Participants also will walk through the admissions process, learn about the St. Louis area and have some fun and recreation.

We will pray, study Scripture, build fellowship, experience life as a student at Concordia Seminary, and learn what it means to serve God’s people through pastoral and diaconal ministry,” said Rev. Micah Glenn, director of Recruitment.
