Find God’s Calling For Your Life

Vocatio is a fun opportunity for high school students entering grades nine through 12 to participate in Bible study, worship and discussion about vocation. This six-day retreat on Concordia Seminary’s campus encourages participants to find God’s calling for their lives through studying theology, learning from Seminary professors and engaging in thoughtful conversation. Throughout the week, Vocatio participants engage in several different exciting opportunities, including:

Servant Event

Students participate in a Servant Event. Past events have included work at St. Louis area congregations and the Saxon Lutheran Memorial in Frohna, Mo.

Worship

Participants attend daily chapel services and Sunday morning worship in the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus on the Seminary campus.

College Fair

Students learn about the Concordia University System and the programs they offer to prepare students to do Christ’s work in the world.

St. Louis Attractions

Participants also have the opportunity to attend an event in the St. Louis area, such as a St. Louis Cardinals game or the Muny outdoor musical theater.
