The Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus stands at the heart and center of Concordia Seminary. It is here that the faculty, students, staff and members of the community hear of the Lord’s promises and receive His gifts. It is here where we come together united as the body of Christ to receive His true body and blood.

In the chapel, the words and gifts of Jesus mold and shape seminarians into becoming the pastors Saints Timothy and Titus were. In this chapel future pastors learn how to lead worship  and the liturgy, preach, sing and pray.

Additionally the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus is used for classes, private Confession and Absolution, personal devotions and choir rehearsals. All members of the Seminary community and the public are invited to join with us in the worship of Christ the King.

Evening Worship

At 9 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, the community has the opportunity to come together and end the day in the Word. Held in the Chapel of St. Lois and St. Eunice (chapel basement), individuals come together as one body to celebrate Holden Evening Prayer, Compline or evening prayer. All are welcome to attend.

Confession and Absolution

Though corporate Confession and Absolution is offered during Eucharist services about once per month, private Confession and Absolution is offered by Chaplain Paul Sieveking once a week. Though times vary, private Confession is usually offered on Eucharist days at the altar in the afternoon. Check the Daily Announcements for more information. To schedule a time for private Confession and Absolution, contact Chaplain Sieveking.

Prayer Requests

For prayer requests, please log on to SemNet and click on “Resources.” Then, click on “Chapel,” and finally “Prayer Requests.” You also may submit written prayer requests in the receptacle located in the narthex. Throughout the week, we lift up students, faculty, Concordia University System schools, partner church bodies, persecuted Christians, Synod staff and others to be included in our daily worship through prayer and thanksgiving.

Chapel Stained Glass

Thanks to a generous gift from the Eugene E. and Nell S. Fincke Memorial Trust, stained glass windows will be installed throughout the entirety of the chapel — chancel, transept, nave and narthex in 2020.

Several years before the chapel’s dedication, former Seminary President Dr. Karl L. Barth began an effort to gather the necessary resources to construct a freestanding chapel on the Seminary’s campus.
