Call Day

The Seminary recognizes and celebrates calls throughout the year although the campus’ primary Call Day celebration typically is held in April. On Call Day, concluding students receive their first calls to ministry and second-year students receive their assignments for vicarages and deaconess internships. All calls and assignments for service are to churches or ministries within The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS).

Call Day this year is April 28, 2021. Assignments and calls will be announced and celebrated during two worship services on Call Day in the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, in-person attendance will be limited to participating students, those involved in leading the service and a limited number of students’ guests. Registration is required for all guests for contact tracing purposes. All participants must observe face covering and social distancing guidelines.

Please join in the celebration of Call Day by sharing photos and video of your in-home celebrations on social media by using #CallDay2021 and #CallDayWatchParty!

Watch the live stream of both services below, on YouTube or you can watch the vicarage live stream at 3 p.m. and the call service at 7 p.m. on Vimeo.
