Vocatio retreat for high school students set for June 25-July 2

On-campus visit helps students explore call to ministry

High school students interested in attending Concordia Seminary, St. Louis are invited to Vocatio June 25-July 2 on campus. This free, weeklong retreat, following the Seminary’s academic theme for the year, “Your Word is a lamp to my feet” (Ps. 119:105), provides prospective students the opportunity to explore God’s calling and direction as they experience Seminary life.

During this retreat, participants will engage in theological conversation, hear from Seminary professors and attend a Concordia University System college fair. 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.

Vocatio is an incredible experience for the young people of our church to explore the possibilities of a church work career, experience Seminary life and be around likeminded peers who share their faith,” said Rev. Micah Glenn,director of recruitment. “I’m looking forward to another great retreat this summer and excited to see some familiar faces and meet some new ones as well!”

The deadline to register is May 27. Learn more or sign up at csl.edu/vocatio.

Vocatio is one of two visitation events for prospective students held throughout the year that provide a preview of the Seminary’s ministerial formation experience. Personalized visits also can be scheduled and are highly encouraged for those considering attending the Seminary. For more information, contact the Seminary at 800-822-9545 or admit@csl.edu, or visit csl.edu/admissions.
