Alumni Reunion

The annual Alumni Reunion for graduates of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis will be held Oct. 12-13 on campus. This year’s reunion extends a special welcome to members of the jubilarian class of 1973; the silver anniversary class of 1998; and graduates, spouses and widows of class years ending in “3” or “8.”

The reunion provides an opportunity for alumni and spouses to reconnect, reminisce and celebrate. It also offers time for alumni to reacquaint themselves with the beautiful Concordia Seminary campus and the global ministry taking place at their alma mater.

“The annual Alumni Reunion is a joyful occasion for welcoming home our graduates,” said Vicki Biggs, senior vice president of Seminary Advancement and chief communications officer. “The entire campus community joins together in welcoming our alumni back to campus and in celebrating the bonds that unite our graduates in their service to the Gospel. With an agenda that includes interesting presentations mixed with plenty of free time for connecting with one another, we invite our alumni to plan to return to their alma mater to reconnect, reminisce – and see what’s new!”

On the evening of Oct. 11, the eve of the reunion, an inaugural alumni soccer game will take place with alumni versus the current Seminary Preachers team. Alumni interested in playing should sign up in advance of the reunion.

Additional highlights of this year’s reunion include:

  • Recognition of the jubilarian class, silver anniversary class and all alumni in chapel
  • Interactive presentation with Dr. Thomas J. Egger, president of Concordia Seminary
  • An in-depth look at the new chapel stained glass windows with Dr. Jon Vieker, dean of chapel
  • Closing banquet featuring Barbara Kay, who will portray Katie Luther, wife of Martin Luther, in a first-person performance
